November 30th National Mason Jar Day

Today is Unboxing the Bizarre’s own day, National Mason Jar Day. It celebrates the invention of the screw of lid, and more importantly the rubber sealed lid, that was created by John Landis Mason. Patent number #22186. Before Mason’s invention people stored food but it was often contaminated because air could get inside the can or jar being used. Mason figured out a way to keep the flavor in while preventing germs and bacteria from getting inside. Today the Mason jar is widely used all over the world and not just for canning.
