Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

09012007cb.jpgChicken Boy’s Birthday
I’ve gotta say this is one of my absolute favorite daily holidays of the year. My admiration for Chicken Boy, and the artist that “saved” him from certain destruction, goes back years and years and years!

And who, or more realistically what, is Chicken Boy you may ask?

Well Shame! Shame! Shame on you, you cultural Luddite!

The beloved Chicken Boy is a pop cultural icon in Los Angeles. Chicken Boy is a 22-foot-tall statue of a boy with a chicken’s head holding a bucket of chicken.

09282009cb Named for the former restaurant that once shared his name, Chicken Boy was rescued from destruction by a local graphic designer over 20 years ago and now resides proudly once again over the Los Angeles community. Chicken Boy has also been lovingly referred to as the “Statue of Liberty” of Los Angeles.

Visit the official Chicken Boy website for more information (make sure to read the looong story as it’s very humorous) and of course CB gifties galore! And don’t forget to print out your own membership card to become a card carrying “Friend of Chicken Boy.”

“Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love”

<Sigh> Our summer flings fun times are just about over and its time to get back to the real world. <groan>

And the big celebration this month is back to school. Or at least it is for a lot of parents, who are celebrating big time this month! Why you can almost hear the cheers from here!

Free at last,
Free at last,
Thank G-d almighty,
we’re free at last!

So with the summer behind us, its time to get back into the holiday swing of things. There’s lots going on this month as we start the countdown to the upcoming holiday season!

Among the holidays this month we’ll be observing the celebrations of Labor Day (Sept. 07), Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year – begins sundown Sept. 18), the breaking of the fast of Ramadan with the joyous festival of Eid ul-Fitr (EID) (Sept. 20), and the ending of the Jewish High Holy Days with a solemn day of fasting and reflection – Yom Kippur (begins at sundown Sept. 27).

And with all this to look forward too, September begins with our absolute favorite daily holiday of the year – Chicken Boy’s Birthday!! (And isn’t it appropriate that its National Chicken Month!)

While September is the 9th month of the year, it originally was the seventh month. In fact September is named for septem – the number seven.
