September 29 - Happy Goose Day
September 29 is known as St. Michael's Day, patron of grocers and bakers. (Also called Goose Day in some locations) - "If you eat goose on Michaelmas Day, you will never want money all the year round."
One reason for this belief is that Michaelmas (Archangel Michael's feast day) was traditionally one of the English "Quarter Days", when people would settle their rents and accounts. The settling of accounts was often done with a brace of plump geese from the spring hatching.
Therefore, if you could afford to eat goose on this day (probably after paying rent with some of your fowl), you would probably not want for money in the coming year.
September 29 - Quick Draw McGraw's Birthday
Making its debut in syndication on Sept. 29, 1959, "The Quick Draw McGraw Show" featured a hero with horse sense and his Mexican burro sidekick, Baba Looey. With the then-current Zorro craze, Hanna-Barbera adapted its hero to a mysterious good guy who would smash various banditos with his out-of-tune guitar and a mighty "EL KABONG".
