Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
- At 7:55 am (local time) Dec 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy, nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US Gibraltar of the Pacific. The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Nearly the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by the Congress Dec 8, 1941.

National Cotton Candy Day (1899)
- Cotton Candy was originally called fairy floss. It is made from Floss (or Flossine) sugar. The Cotton Candy machine was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. They brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, where it was quite popular. Cotton Candy is a favorite at amusement parks, circuses, fairs, and sports venues.

National Letter Writing Day
- Letter writing is an almost lost skill. Most letters and notes nowadays are on emails and instant messages. Or, they are typed on an internet keyboard. Take a few minutes, and send someone a handwritten letter.

Apollo 17 Anniversary (1972)
- Launched December 7, 1972, with a three-man crew — Eugene A. Cernan, Harrison H. Schmidt, Ronald E. Evans — who explored the moon, December 11–14. Lunar landing module named Challenger. Pacific splashdown, December 19. This was the last manned mission to the moon.

International Civil Aviation Day (1996)
- A day to raise awareness of the importance of international civil aviation and the role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) plays in international air transport. The organization is a United Nations (UN) body responsible for developing international standards for aviation safety.

National Fire Safety Day (1979)
- The National Fire Safety Council was formed in 1979 to encourage education and the prevention of burns, especially among children. With ovens cooking, tree-lights kept on, candles, children, pets and Aunt Bertha sleeping with a ciggy hanging out of her mouth; we can't watch it all. Take a look around your home and/or office and make it a safety zone. At home, make sure you have multiple exit strategies for all people and animals in your home. If you hear a fire alarm from a neighbors house, take the extra minute, to knock on the door, to ask if everything is OK. Most of the time it will be... but.... what if you were needed?

Instant Replay Day (1963)
- On December 7, 1963 TV and sports history was made when the first instant replay ever seen on the air was broadcast during the Army-Navy game. The creator was 29-year-old wunderkind CBS television director Tony Verna, whose illustrious show-business career has spanned over 50 years of Sport and Entertainment history.
