November 27th

1830: St. Catherine Laboure experienced a vision of the Blessed Virgin standing on a globe, crushing the feet of a serpent, and eminating rays of light from her hands. Her experience inspires millions of pilgrims to begin looking for her stash.

1839: In Boston, Massachusetts, the American Statistical Association is founded... also known as "The Society for Guys who ain't Getting Any."

2004: Pope John Paul II returns the relics of Saint John Chrysostom to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Tragically, he forgets to get a receipt.
