Today, October 24th, is Japan’s official Margarine Day, w0oT?!
(“10/24 is Margarine Day”)
Why October 24th?
October 24th is the birthday of the French chemist, Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès, who created margarine as a substitute for butter in 1869 as a result of a request by Emperor Napoleon III (Wiki). Therefore, the Japan Margarine Industry Association picked the 24th for Japan’s Margarine Day.

The website goes on to remind us to, “Take power in your crow love.”
