It feels as though as the holidays get closer, the ridiculous holidays get lamer and lamer. I mean, Dewey Decimal System Day? Blah. But then again, there’s cupcakes and pastries, so…we’re good.
Monday, December 9th
National Pastry Day
So many pasties for them to only have one day.
Weary Willie Day
Tuesday, December 10th
Dewey Decimal System Day
Shout out to all my librarian friends. Oddly enough, I have more than one.
National Lager Day
I don’t like beer so I don’t really have any thoughts here.
Human Rights Day
There’s a lot going on any given day. Check out Human Rights Watch to learn more about human rights worldwide.
Nobel Prize Day
I’ll give out a Nobel Prize to the person that figures out how to appropriate heat and cool office space and not a day before.
Wednesday, December 11th
National App Day
I personally prefer the appetizer kind of apps than the application type.
National Noodle Ring Day
What the hell is a noodle ring??
Thursday, December 12th
National Ambrosia Day
I’m not really a fan of fruit salad.
National Ding-a-Ling Day
This came up when I googled Ding-a-Ling. You’re welcome.
Gingerbread House Day
Fun Jenna fact: I’ve never made a gingerbread house.
I miss having poinsettias in my house because they are animal poison and my cats are morons.
Friday, December 13th
National Cocoa Day
Yum. A little whipped cream on top and I’m a happy camper.
National Violin Day
I never learned how to play an instrument. I bet the violin would be kind of fun to play.
National Day Of The Horse
Sure, I like horses as much as the next person.
Saturday, December 14th
National Bouillabaisse Day
It’s basically fish soup and I’m basically like no thanks.
National Alabama Day
Fun fact: “Scottsboro, AL is the ultimate destination for unclaimed travel baggage. The city is home to the massive, department-store sized Unclaimed Baggage Center, which is where lost luggage gets routed after all attempts to locate owners have been exhausted. The goods are then sold, thrift store-style, to customers.”
National Wreaths Across America Day
“In 2018, nearly 1.8 million veteran wreaths were placed on headstones at 1,640 participating cemeteries around the country in honor of the service and sacrifices made for our freedoms, with each name said out loud. This year, National Wreaths Across America Day is Saturday, December 14, 2019.” Visit wreathsacrossamerica.org to learn more.
Sunday, December 15th
National Cupcake Day
My personal favorite is red velvet. You?
Bill of Rights Day
“On December 15, 1791, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, later known as the Bill of Rights, were ratified.” Amendment X: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. Interesting.
Cat Herders Day
Do I get a gift for herding Frank and Phoebe when they had to go the vet?
National Wear Your Pearls Day
On a Sunday with my football pajamas? If you say so.
