In addition to serving as president during the civil war and saving the Union, Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation that ended slavery in the U.S. forever.He also wrote and gave The Gettysburg Address, memorializing the bloodiest and most important battle of the Civil War.
Hmmm... it's barely been six weeks since Christmas? Who on earth wants Plum Pudding again so soon?
Maybe the day is for those who didn't get any at Christmas, so they don't have to wait the rest of the year for their next chance. After all, if you're in America, chances are you didn't get it at all for Christmas, and that you may never have had it in your life, even.
Fans might point out, though, that it's only in the past 200 years or so that Plum Pudding got relegated to Christmas only
