So many pasties for them to only have one day.

I don’t like beer so I don’t really have any thoughts here.

There’s a lot going on any given day. Check out Human Rights Watch to learn more about human rights worldwide.

I personally prefer the appetizer kind of apps than the application type.

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.
