Holiday List - December 2013

Most of you got to these stories through Facebook, so most of you already know that every day is a holiday. It has come to my attention that some people like to know about holidays in advance of the actual date, so they can celebrate accordingly, of course. I see their point. I mean, how can you properly celebrate National Donut Day, if you passed all the donut stores on your way to work and THEN found out it was National Donut Day. I don't know why I didn't think of this before. Oh yeah...I didn't really keep up with the blog very well before. Well, now that I am doing better, I can give you a head's up (or is it heads up - or heads' up?...I don't know for sure, but you know what I mean).  

So, here is the list for December. Aaaand, here is the disclaimer. As I've said before, I do not make up these holidays. These are all real holidays, celebrated somewhere in the world (mostly the US, and when at all possible, Texas - I like to keep it local). Some days have more than one holiday - I am aware of this, and I have chosen the one I like best. It was my idea to post the holidays for you, so I get to pick. Mainly though, because, which would you rather celebrate, World Choral Day or Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day (Dec 8)? Sure, about three of you said World Choral Day because you have really nice singing voices and like to sing in public (sorry). The rest of us will be acting like we just showed up from the future and are looking for a flux capacitor. What I mean to say is, if you don't like the holiday, just wait until the next day - I'm sure it will be better suited for you.  

OK, is the list.

 1 - Day with Art Day
 2 - National Mutt Day
 3 - Giving Tuesday
 4 - National Cookie Day
 5 - Annual Day of the Ninja
 6 - Mitten Tree Day
 7 - National Cotton Candy Day
 8 - Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day
 9 - Roller Skate Day
10 - Dewey Decimal System Day
11 - International Mountain Day
12 - Poinsettia Day
13 - National Cocoa Day
14 - Monkey Day
15 - Cat Herders Day
16 - National Chocolate Covered Anything Day
17 - National Maple Syrup Day
18 - Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day
19 - Oatmeal Muffin Day
20 - Games Day
21 - Crossword Puzzle Day
22 - Thermometer Day
23 - Festivus
24 - National Egg Nog Day
25 - Christmas
26 - National Whiners' Day
27 - Visit the Zoo Day
28 - Card Playing Day
29 - Pepper Pot Day
30 - Bacon Day
31 - Make Up Your Mind Day

That's the list. We will eat, drink and be merry all this month - maybe even with a plunger on our heads! 

Happy Holidays and much love to you,

Oh yeah...have you actually subscribed to the blog? If you do, you'll get the low-down way before the Facebookers. Where do I sign up? you ask...up there in the right hand corner...right under where it says, "follow ME by email." Just type your email address in there and hit submit. You'll get an email asking you to confirm your email address (that's so 'they' know that you've really signed up and I'm not just forcing you to get my emails). Be sure and complete the confirmation process. Then, just like that, you'll get stories from ME!
