Tuesday 2017.01.17 ^
Benjamin Franklin's Birthday. (1706.01.17-1790.04.17). Yearly.
Day to remember the great early American scientist, thinker and statesman. Franklin is remembered for his Poor Richard's Almanac, the discovery of the electrical nature of lightning leading to the invention of the lightning rod, and for his political activities in pre and post-revolutionary America. Born in Boston MA, one of thirteen children of a puritan family, died in Philadelphia. Because Franklin recommended thrift, some schools start a Thrift Week on his birthday.
