Relaxation Day
- This day provides a day for your mind to rest, a day for dreaming, and a day for doing absolutely nothing. Avoid all stressful activities today. Let your body heal, rest and relax. Get on a float at the lake and let the smooth waves glide you.

Falling Needles Family Fest Day
- Now that the yuletide tree’s been up for weeks and hasn’t been watered since a couple of days before Christmas, gather the gang around and watch the needles gently fall one by one. Live it up! Dance barefoot!

Let's Make a Deal Day
- Monty Hall hosted this outrageous and no-skill-required game show in 1963. Audience members, many of whom wore costumes, were selected to sit in the trading area, and some were picked to “make a deal” with Hall by trading something of their own for something they were offered. Sometimes prizes were worthless (“zonks”). At the end of the show, the two people who had won the most were given the option to trade their winnings for a chance at the “Big Deal,” hidden behind one of three doors.

USSR Established
- After the Russian revolution of 1917 and the subsequent three-year civil war, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (or Soviet Union) was founded in 1922, a confederation of Russia, Byelorussia, the Ukraine and the Transcaucasian Federation. It was the first state in the world to be based on Marxist communism.

"The Roy Rogers Show" TV Premiere
- This very popular 1951 TV western starred Roy Rogers and his wife, Dale Evans, as themselves. It also featured Pat Brady as Rogers’s sidekick who rode a jeep named Nellybelle, the singing group Sons of the Pioneers, Rogers’s horse Trigger, Evans’s horse Buttermilk and a German shepherd named Bullet.
