Greeting Card Campaign: 12-07 National Cotton Candy Day

Click here to download your card.
As if you weren't already preparing for new fun with dentistry with the Christmas season in full swing, along comes December 7 - National Cotton Candy Day. Cotton Candy is usually associated with summertime, but apparently the stuff is so popular it's been given two holidays about six months apart - one in June and one in December. Not sure why the December celebration date, but it's probably somebody's birthday or the date the process was invented or patented. The Cotton Candy machine, itself, was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton, who brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, where it was quite a hit. A lot of junk food really got a boost at that particular fair including hamburgers and hot dogs. Cotton Candy has, in the past century, become a staple junk food at amusement parks, circuses, fairs, and sports events.  Originally called fairy floss because it is made from Flossine sugar, it comes in different colors and attempts have been made to give it flavors - as though sugar wasn't a flavor. 

Tell your "sweetie" that you think she's as sweet as cotton candy with this printable, downloadable and always free National Cotton Candy Day greeting card!

Just click on the caption below the cotton candy picture.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "download" and copy the file to your own computer. Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside.
