November 30, 2022 - National Mason Jar Day | Computer Security Day

November 29, 2022

Welcome to November 30, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate safety in the kitchen and online.

Believe it or not, before patent #22186, home canning wasn’t safe. Thanks to John Landis Mason, a tinsmith from New Jersey, the “Improvement on Screw-Neck Bottles,” made it possible to preserve produce right at home. The Mason Jar changed the way we pickle and pack food from our garden and those bumper crops from the Farmer’s Market. They also make a cool holiday gift when you layer dry ingredients for baked goods or other treats for the DIY enthusiasts on your list. On National Mason Jar Day enjoy this versatile vessel and all the gifts it can hold for the ones you love.  

With so many people shopping online these days it’s important to remember that hackers are surfing the internet as well. Unfortunately, the season for deals is also big for identity theft. So while you’re getting your holiday shopping underway, pay special attention to your online security. Nothing will keep you completely safe, but there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself. As tempting as it may be, don’t use public wifi to do your shopping and use strong passwords for your online accounts. Be sure to keep your software updated and firewalls in place. On Computer Security Day, take a few minutes to check that you’re browsing the web safely so that you have one less thing to worry about during the holidays. 

I’m Anna Devere and I’m Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.
