-- Few motion pictures have enjoyed a renaissance like the 1946 Frank Capra masterpiece It's a Wonderful Life. Nominated for five Academy Awards, it was dismissed as syrupy Christmas fare and fell into obscurity until television gave it new life. Today it's an American tradition. Any fan of the classic film can further appreciate its magic and legacy. The warm reminiscences of the film's cast are supported by excellent photographs, providing the perfect companion for any fan of the film -- or anyone who believes in miracles and angels. It features dozens of interviews and rare behind-the-scenes photographs allowing readers to see how the movie was created.

National Sangria Day (2008)
- Sangria is a popular drink at bars, pubs, and restaurants in Portugal, Spain, and Mexico, and throughout the United States. But at one point it was illegal to serve Sangria in the state of Virginia! It violated an obscure 75-year-old law forbidding the mixing of wine or beer with spirits. Violators of this law could be charged with a misdemeanor, a hefty fine, and up to a year in jail. It was not until 2008 the Virginia General Assembly finally legalized the serving of Sangria due to public outcries about the law.

Go Caroling Day
- It's all about singing door to door in celebration of the Christmas Season! This holiday celebrates carols of the past by dressing up in period costume and celebrating this holiday by going door to door singing Christmas carols as a caroling group.

Sacagawea Day (1812)
- As a young Shoshone Indian woman, Sacagawea in 1805 (with her two-month-old son strapped to her back) traveled with the Lewis and Clark expedition, serving as an interpreter. It is said the expedition could not have succeeded without her aid. She died December 20, 1812, in Fort Manuel, on the Missouri River, Dakota Territory.

Mudd Day (1833)
- A day to remember Dr. Samuel A. Mudd (born near Bryantown, MD, Dec 20, 1833), sentenced to life imprisonment for giving medical aid to disguised John Wilkes Booth, fleeing assassin of Abraham Lincoln. Imprisoned four years before being pardoned by President Andrew Johnson.

Games Day (1975)
- A yearly run convention sponsored by Games Workshop, it has its origins in 1975, following the indefinite shelving of another games convention scheduled for August that year and a decision by Games Workshop to fill the resulting gap by running a gaming day of their own. As a result, after some delays, the first Games Day was held at Seymour Hall, London on December 20, 1975.
