Which would be October 8th in our Gregorian calendar, assuming the conversion page I used is correct.

I'm watching some old cereal commercials from like the 80's and earlier, and it's kind of funny to me how self-conscious and defensive the (relatively) healthier cereals are. Like it seems a very common theme for their ads is some variation of "your kids will definitely love this bland and boring cereal, we promise".

I was adding 5-6 tablespoons of sugar when unsupervised in the 70s. :D

It wasn't a proper bowl of cereal if there wasn't a half inch of brightly-colored sludge in the bottom of the bowl when the cereal was gone.

Somewhere I read that of all the big name cereals there are only two with no sugar, puffed wheat and puffed rice.

Two cereals that are about as appealing as eating Styrofoam beads.
