The legend of Paul Bunyan started with stories told by men in lumber camps. He was supposed to be a giant lumberjack who performed incredible feats - such as scooping out the Great Lakes to get water for his blue ox, Babe. The stories probably date back to the 1800's. They appeared in newspapers in the early 1900's and turned Paul into part of American folklore.
Beginning Sept 18, 2009, my 26th Birthday, I will be celebrating a holiday every day for 1 year! I figure I LOVE the holidays I usually celebrate so why not celebrate something every day. I could be missing out on so much.
