National holidays give me cheer.

I only wish I could see it as my screen saver and I would see it automatically when I turn on my device.

👍 Great app [please make widget font large again!]

The widget is a great way to see something different every day. Unfortunately the last update often compresses the font to sizes unreadable without a magnifying glass! 🔍
[August 18, 2017 UPDATE: My original review was January 14. so my first observed the widget text became smaller around the beginning of this year. I'm using an iPhone 6S and have been keeping the OS current by installing every iOS update. Perhaps the widget text shrank because of an iOS update?]

No easy way to provide feedback in app

I have seen many holidays have the wrong date for example today is listed as National Personal Chef day. I was about to send to a friend who is in-fact a personal chef, but decided to check other internet sources. It appears this holiday is on July 16th not February 26. Wish there was a way to add feedback easily for fact checkers
