It's also the 241st anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.
But the Boston event wasn't a stand alone affair. It just got the party started.

An advance copy of Ten Tea Parties by Joseph Cummins came my way.
It's a fascinating, quick read that brings to life much of the forgotten history of the Boston Tea Party, and the Tea Parties that followed in other colonies.
The Tea Parties weren't a fluke. Or a prank. They were hard-edge, well planned economic protests that helped unite a soon to be born nation.
Ten Tea Parties is a book well worth putting on your reading list. If you're politically minded, it's likely one you'll want to share with friends. The book's announced release date is January 17, 2012.
The book's still available at Amazon, some copies at deep discounts.
Now that my memory's been jogged, I may give it a reread over the holidays.
