BANNER: National ONE-HIT WONDER Day | September 25 (#NationalOneHitWonderDay)

Today is the day to praise all those artists and their one-hit wonders by replaying and remembering their songs!

A one-hit wonder is any entity that achieves mainstream popularity and success for a very short period of time, often for only one piece of work, and becomes known among the general public solely for that momentary success. The term is most commonly used in regard to music performers with only one top-40 hit single that overshadows their other work. Sometimes, artists dubbed "one-hit wonders" in a particular country have had great success in others.

BANNER: National PUNCH Day | September 20 (#NationalPunchDay)

Punch is a wide assortment of drinks, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, generally containing fruit or fruit juice. The drink was introduced from India to the United Kingdom in the early seventeenth century, and from there its use spread to other countries. Punch is typically served at parties in large, wide bowls, known as punch bowls.

The word punch is a loanword from Sanskrit, meaning "five", as the drink was originally made with five ingredients: alcohol, sugar, lemon, water, and tea or spices.

Today, soft drink manufacturers distribute many types of "fruit punch" beverages. These are usually red-colored drinks. Despite the name, most brands contain only a small fraction of actual fruit juice, the major constituents being sugar or corn syrup, citric acid, and artificial flavors.
