Today is National California Day

Today is National California Day - my husband is from California, we met on an active volcano in California - yes, there is an active volcano in California . . . Mount Lassen - and we lived there a few years when our children were young, so I personally find the silly laws and interesting information about California to be, well, interesting! Whether you live in, or have lived in California or not, I hope you find this post interesting, too. Let's start with the silly laws, did you know . . . 

  • It is illegal for women to drive vehicles while wearing a housecoat.
  • In Blythe, you are only permitted to wear cowboy boots if you own at least two cows.
  • Between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., it is illegal to walk a camel down Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
  • Flying a kite higher than 10 feet off the ground is also prohibited in Walnut.
  • In Fresno, visitors cannot bother lizards at city parks.
You will find more silly laws at this link. Now for some interesting facts about the State of California, did you know . . .
  • It is known as the Golden State.
  • It is also the most populous state and the third-largest state by area.
  • California is a land of geographical diversity, blessed with seashores, forests, deserts, valleys, coastal mountain ranges, and a thriving agricultural landmass. 
  • The state motto of California is “Eureka!” which means “I have found it.”
  • It is the only place on Earth where you will find the Giant Sequoya Trees.
