February 11th was “Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day”
February is famous for Valentine’s Day. Did you know that February 11th is “Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day?”
This phrase originated somewhere in Europe during the 1600’s, but became popular in the United States during the Great Depression. The price of milk as a commodity had fallen so low that dairy farmers were subsidized by the state to destroy their surplus milk in order to bring prices back up to a profitable level.
The meaning behind the phrase is do not cry over something you cannot change. Once the milk is spilled, it is gone and cannot be put back. Now you can focus on what is ahead. But, don’t forget the mess on the floor that needs to be cleaned up.
There is no need to fret over spilled milk or spilled anything when you are prepared with a spill kit or bulk absorbents for quick clean up.
