Was it really just one year ago that we here over here announcing that Woot Tools & Garden had bloomed from the harsh cold ground? It's hard to believe, but it's true. Something like 52 Mondays hence, that little site came to life. And now it seems like it's always been here.

Anyway, in honor of this very special day, we're having a little celebration for the next fortnight*. Check out a special soundtrack, or the Woot Tools & Garden main page, or the various Woot Plus sales, or our Facebook, or maybe even our Twitter because in some or all of these places you'll see us giving away our presents to you! Sadly, we can't offer slices of cake. You'll have to buy that somewhere else.

*if you don't know what a fortnight is maybe look it up on this new thing called Google

A fortnight is a unit of time equal to 14 days (2 weeks). The word derives from the Old English: fēowertyne niht, meaning "fourteen nights".[1][2] Fortnight and fortnightly are commonly used words in the English-speaking world, where many wages and salaries and most social security benefits are paid on a fortnightly basis,[3] except North America, where it is rare outside of some Canadian regions and insular traditional communities (e.g. Amish) in the United States. American and Canadian payroll systems may use the term biweekly in reference to pay periods every two weeks. Neither term should be confused with semimonthly (in one year there are 26 fortnightly or biweekly versus 24 semimonthly pay periods).
Happy Tools & Garden Birthday, woot!
