19 January - Tin Can Day
Tin cans are containers most commonly used in commercial production, to package or store items like food or other products. Patented in 1810 by Peter Durand, a British merchant, the Tin Can has been a way to store perishable foods for over 200 years. The Tin Can was not patented until 1825 by Daggett and Kensett in the United States, and it would be another 33 years until Ezra Warner would invent the can opener in 1858.
Tin cans are measured by a variety of formats, from net weight, volume and size, often varying by country. The shape of a tin can is most commonly cylindrical, although round-edged prisms are also available; and they generally feature a rim on the top, and sometimes bottom edge, as well as a label, that is usually either printed or glued on.
Tin can walls often have one or more ridges or indents circling the can, giving a corrugated look, and these are designed to add strength to the can, and they can also sometimes be found on the top and base.
