From the The Old Farmer's Almanac guidelines:

We bring timeless topics to the page under a variety of categories: amusement, astronomy, folklore, food, gardening, history, home remedies, husbandry, nature/outdoors, pets, romance, sports/fishing, weather, and others. We celebrate and commemorate past people and events with historic or “anniversary” stories that shed new light on the subject and/or update the subject with the latest information. (An anniversary year is typically one that is divisible by 5, but preferably is 25, 50, or 100 years ago.)

We often feature a “special report” on a topic of broad general interest. In the past, those have included romance, superstitions, and wedding traditions past and present.

We especially encourage humor of all kinds: the fanciful, the bizarre, the ludicrous, and the offbeat.
