Tin Can Day!

What does this holiday celebrate?
It celebrates the birth of the tin can!
Wikipedia encyclopedia tells us that "The tin can was patented in 1810 by the English inventor Peter Durand." "He did not produce any food cans himself, but sold his patent to two other Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who set up a commercial canning factory, and by 1813 were producing their first canned goods for the British Army." "Nowadays cans are usually recycled."

As the popularity of this holiday gains strength, we find that classrooms pick this date to study about the history of the tin can.

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites but no reference to the background of the holiday. Such as- why the month of January and why the 19th day??  That's the question...

This holiday is still referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a Weird Holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So enjoy the day and have fun with it.  Live everyday like a holiday!

Definition of a Tin Can
A tin can, also called a tin (especially in British English) or a can, is an air-tight container for the distribution or storage of goods, composed of thin metal, and requiring cutting or tearing of the metal as the means of opening. Cans hold diverse contents, but the overwhelming majority preserve food by canning.

Tin cans are not made solely of tin, but rather tin-coated steel or tinplate. Aluminum or other metals may also be used to make cans.
