1. World Milk Day - 1 June
The United Nations started World Milk Day in 2001 to recognize the importance of milk as a global food and to celebrate the dairy sector. Each year since, the benefits of milk and dairy products have been actively promoted around the world, including how dairy supports the livelihoods of one billion people.
This year’s theme will highlight the work already being done to accelerate climate action and help reduce the dairy sector’s impact on the planet. Using the World Milk Day platform, the aim is to raise awareness of the messaging and action towards Dairy Net-Zero.

I love cheese! Probably more than chocolate. Cheesemaking is an ancient, some might even say sacred, craft. In fact, it’s so old it predates recorded history. It’s speculated that the magic of cheesemaking began somewhere around 8000BCE shortly after the domestication of animals.

5. Yo-Yo Day - 6th June
It seems like yo-yos have been around forever and it’s true as some people think they were invented over 2,000 years ago! Some believe it all started in ancient Greece, but modern yo-yos more likely came from the Philippines. The word ‘yo-yo’ first appeared in a Filipino dictionary in 1860.
They became popular in the USA in the 1930s. Pedro Flores (of Filipino descent) began mass producing yo-yos in 1928. After holding some promotional competitions, he caught the eye of Donald F. Duncan Sr, who thought they were awesome! Duncan bought Flores out, hired him to run the marketing campaigns, and the rest is history. Find out more about yo-yo day here.

Other ingredients might include onions and spices, such as cumin or coriander. Some people eat falafel on its own while others stuff it inside a pita and eat it as a wrap. Because falafel doesn’t contain any meat or dairy, the food is a favourite among vegetarians and vegans.

One of the first flag designs had the stars arranged in a circle, based on the idea that all colonies were equal. Today, there are 50 stars, one for each state in the union, but the 13 stripes remain.
