December Celebrations - Days 1 Through 8:
World Aids Awareness Day
Eat a Red Apple Day
Rosa Park's Day
With Christmas right around the corner, you really need to "charge your batteries" and get in the spirit of things with some traditional movies. Some of our personal favorites are "Christmas Vacation", "Christmas Story" and "It's a Wonderful Life". Start a family tradition ~ traditions have to start somewhere and with someone. Why not with you this year? In fact, when our children started households of their own, we purchased copies for them to continue on with the merriment and family bonding.

SANTA'S LIST DAY If you haven't made your holiday "WISH LIST" yet, now is definately the time to do so. Most of us who still believe in Santa have it done around the Thanksgiving Holiday. By doing so, Santa can take advantage of those "Black Friday" sales the day after Thanksgiving! Ooops...maybe instead of us making a wish list, this is the day that Santa checks over HIS list for good boys and girls...Better be good!!
Wear Brown Shoes Day
National Dice Day
NATIONAL COOKIE DAY A wonderful day to have a few friends over to bake cookies together and make the chore a little lighter for everyone. If the cookies are already baked, why not consider a "cookie exchange". That way everyone will have several different kinds of cookies to present while entertaining during December celebrations later in the month. Be sure to exchange recipes; you never know which ones will be "keepers".
WALT DISNEY'S BIRTHDAY Time to take a break and celebrate Mr. Disney's Birthday. Try inviting a few friends over, and popping a few of Walt's films into the DVD player for a relaxing evening of wholesome family entertainment.
National Communicate With Your Baby Day
