A sampling of December Days to Celebrate
Santas’ List Day – Dec 4
Bathtub Party Day – Dec 5
Whether this means you get a nice relaxing bath or your child get a fun day in the bath (or both) this is definitely a day worth celebrating during the hectic holiday season.
Christmas Card Day – Dec 9
Do you still send out holiday cards? Here’s a day set aside for you to sit down and write out your holiday cards.
Gingerbread House Day – Dec 12
No matter how old my children get, this is one tradition we never skip. As they get older, I worry less about precut gingerbread molds that fit perfectly and hand them all the supplies and let them go: graham crackers, butter knife, frosting, and candy toppings. The top of a pizza box works well for the base.
Roast Chestnuts Day – Dec 14
Bake Cookies Day – Dec 18
Go Caroling Day – Dec 20
The top caroling songs (if you’re so brave) are “We wish you a Merry Christmas”, “Joy to the World”, and “Silent Night”.
National Re-Gifting Day – Thursday before Christmas
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day – Third Friday in December
National Egg Nog Day – Dec 24
National Pumpkin Pie Day – Dec 25
National Candy Cane Day – Dec 26
National Thank-you Note Day – Dec 26
Here’s a day that’s lost and should be brought back. Serve some hot chocolate for yourself and your kids and see if you can all sit down even for 30 minutes and write some old-fashioned thank you notes for your presents.
Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day – Dec 27
Make snowflakes with your kids for after Christmas decorations now that the presents are gone. For an extra sparkle, use a glue stick then sprinkle gold and silver glitter on top after cutting them out.
National Champagne Day – Dec 31
