National Wear A Plunger On Your Head Day
- If you have ever thought to yourself, I wish there was a day I could wear a plunger on my head, and not get made fun of, then you are obviously a weirdo... But today your wish will come true. You will still get made fun of because c'mon, you are wearing a plunger on your head, but at least you will have an excuse.

National Roast Suckling Pig Day
- This is a mid-December day to enjoy and remember. While everyone is running around, frantically preparing for the holidays, mom or grandma is busy in the kitchen. She has taken a break from the hubbub to cook a fancy meal.... a roasted suckling pig. As you read this, how many of you thought to yourselves.... Yeah, right... fat chance that will ever happen!

National Bake Cookies Day/All About Bake Cookies Day
- Bake Cookies Day comes at an opportune time. It is right amidst the major December holidays. It serves as a reminder to bake holiday cookies, if you haven't done so already. Young and old celebrate this day by baking their favorite cookies. Make a party of it, and bake cookies in groups with family, friends, kids and grandkids.

Flake Appreciation Day
- A fun day created to encourage us to take notice of snowflakes and to be mesmerized by each icy one which falls.

International Migrants Day
- Recognizes the contributions millions of migrant workers make to the global economy and seeks to draw attention to the precarious state of their rights.

Find a Friend/Be a Friend Day
- Sometimes you wonder where are all your friends when you need them? Or, maybe, you have focused on your business or career and have just a few friends you could find. You possibly also give all of yourself to your spouse and family leaving little time for friends. Well, if you would like more friends you can count on, you must be a friend first.

Mother Goose Day (1719)
- Thomas Fleet of Boston, Massachusetts, published his mother-in-law's tales in the book, Mother Goose on December 18, 1719.

Play Bingo Day (1929)
