In opposition to “Kick a Ginger Day” Derek Forgie created “Kiss A Ginger Day,” celebrated on the 12th of January every year.
Famous ginger tops include Carol Burnett, Vincent Van Gogh, Susan Sarandon, Tim Minchin, Ginger Spice, Australian princess Our Knickers, Shirley Maclaine, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Lucille Ball, Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran whose music is a bit cheesy but I still like him.
Celebrate Kiss a Ginger Day by smooching your favourite redhead, and mark January 12 on your calendar because it is far better to spread love than hate. I’ve always loved the orange crayons.
One of my favourite female clowns, Lucille Ball, was born today. She had the most marvellous face and superb timing. Lucy was pregnant on television at a time when this was frowned upon by male executives. She was also the first woman in television to be head of a production company: Desilu, the company that she and Desi Arnaz formed. Thank you Lucy for blazing a trail for women in comedy and sharing your gift.
