National Roast Leg of Lamb Day, In the News, National Day of Prayer, and Enjoy

National Roast Leg of Lamb Day - Today is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!

People first started eating lamb over 10,000 years ago.

It first started in the Middle Ages when farmers realized that sheep were the most useful livestock to raise. They provided wool for items of clothing, milk for dairy products, and a delicious source of meat.

Lamb may be cooked in a variety of different ways, but roasting is one of the most popular methods.

Lamb pairs beautifully with seasonings like rosemary, oregano, thyme, and lemon zest.

    National Day of Prayer - Today is the National Day of Prayer!

    The National Day of Prayer (36 U.S.C. § 119) is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked "to turn to God in prayer and meditation."

    The modern law formalizing its annual observance was enacted in 1952, although earlier days of fasting and prayer had been established by the Second Continental Congress from 1775 until 1783, and by President John Adams in 1798 and 1799.

    The constitutionality of the National Day of Prayer was unsuccessfully challenged in court by the Freedom From Religion Foundation after their first attempt was unanimously dismissed by a federal appellate court in April 2011.
