Besides all the popular winter holidays, there are lots of other reasons to celebrate throughout the month of December. Check them out.
December 1: Special Kids Day – If you have any special kids in your life, make this a day for them to remember.
December 2: International Day for the Abolition of Slavery – You may have thought that slavery was abolished long ago, but it still goes on.
December 3: International Day of Disabled Persons – Spend the day like a disabled person would. I bet you will appreciate everything you are able to do that other people might not be able to.
December 4: National Cookie Day – What else would you do on National Cookie Day?
December 5: Bathtub Party Day – A party in the bathtub? That just sounds wrong.
December 6: St. Nicholas Day – It’s like having a Christmas before Christmas.
December 7: National Cotton Candy Day – Try to not get sick from eating too much sugar.
December 8: Wild Card – Believe it or not, there are no holidays (that I know of) on the 8th. Make up your own holiday.
December 9: Weary Willie Day – Take a nap. It will make you feel better.
December 10: Human Rights Day – Exercise all your rights today.
December 11: UNICEF Birthday – Don’t forget to throw a party with balloons and everything.
December 12: Poinsettia Day – Decorate the house in poinsettias (but if you have pets keep them all up high!).
December 13: Wild Card – Make up another holiday.
December 14: Wild Card – And another…
December 15: Cat Herders Day – I’ve heard of cattle herding and sheep herding…but never cat herding. Why not give it a try, and see how it goes?
December 16: National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day – Of all the chocolate holidays throughout the year, this one’s my favorite. I mean, you can cover anything in chocolate.
December 17: Wright Brothers Day – Hold a party for them. Who cares if they don’t attend? A party’s a party.
December 18: International Migrants Day – Write a thousand word essay about the effect of the increasing number of migrants in the world.
December 19: Day for South-South Cooperation – No, I didn’t stutter.
December 20: Mudd Day – Have a mud–er–mudd fight.
December 21: Humbug Day – This is the one day each year you have a reason to go around telling everyone, “Bah, humbug!”
December 22: National Haiku Poetry Day – Speak in haiku all day. Five syllables, then seven, then five more.
December 23: Festivus – It’s like a festival that anyone can attend.
December 24: Christmas Eve – Of course, you know what Christmas Eve is. No? It’s the day before Christmas, silly.
December 25: A’phabet Day (No ‘L’ Day) – Not only is December 25 Christmas Day, but it’s A’phabet Day. No ‘L’s allowed. Remove them from your vocabu’ary, p’ease.
December 26: National Whiners Day – It’s okay to whine. In fact, it’s encouraged on National Whiners Day.
December 27: Wild Card – Finally…you need to get one more wild card in before the year is over. Make this one special.
December 28: National Chocolate Day – Eat some chocolate…but it doesn’t end here. National Chocolate Day goes on into the 29th, as well.
December 29: National Chocolate Day – Eat some more chocolate.
December 30: Falling Needles Family Fest Day – Let the dried up needles fall off the tree, then dance around it. Barefoot.
December 31: Make up Your Mind Day – Is it–wait. No, maybe not. Yep, I guess it’s my birthday, after all.
