chickensThis story goes that on September 10, 1945 Mike, a young Wyandotte rooster, was about to become the dinner of Fruita, Colorado, farmer Lloyd Olsen.

Mr. Olsen prepared to make Mike dinner by cutting off his head. But when he swung the ax, Mike continued trying to peck for food.

A very strange story, indeed. But now it is celebrated as a day to “keep your head about you when everyone else is losing theirs”!

This was the day that they began selling nylon stockings and they sold over 5 million pair of nylon stockings in one day.
