Utilize the Handy Hole in the Almanac

Have you ever noticed the small hole in the upper left corner of the Farmers’ Almanac? It actually has a very handy use. Thread a piece of string or twine through it to secure your copy and hang it where it’s most convenient: in the outhouse, garage, workbench, garden shed, or pantry. Prevents someone from walking off with it, too!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
