Saturday, 10 April, 2010, is National Siblings Day and National cinnamon Crescent Roll Day. A good way to celebrate both is to meet with your brothers and sisters for coffee and cinnamon crescent rolls, at home or at a restaurant or coffee shop and eat and talk about when you all were kids.
Crescent rolls originated on the American east coast where they were first called croissant rolls, after the French pastry. The name evolved into crescent rolls, easier to pronounce for Americans. Crescent rolls today are distinctly different from the croissant. A croissant is made from laminated dough, with butter and yeasty dough. A crescent roll is sweet dough rolled up in the shape of a croissant. They have the same shape but have totally different taste and texture.
Sibling is a brother or sister. It can be a biological one or adopted, or one who was raised with you. Today is a good time to visit with them, or call and talk, maybe go to a movie together or a day at a park or any mutually enjoyable activity.
How many brothers and sisters do you have and what do you enjoy doing together?
