Image: Robinson Crusoe (Illustrated Classic): 300th Anniversary Collection, by Daniel Defoe (Author). Publisher: SeaWolf Press (December 11, 2018)Robinson Crusoe Day (1709)
-- Anniversary of the rescue of Alexander Selkirk (in 1709), a Scottish sailor who had been put ashore (in September 1704) on the uninhabited island Juan Fernández, at his own request, after a quarrel with his captain. His adventures formed the basis for Daniel Defoe's book Robinson Crusoe. A day to be adventurous and self-reliant.

Read: Robinson Crusoe (Illustrated Classic)
-- The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (original title) was first published in 1719 without any reference to its author, Daniel Defoe. The book was presented as a true autobiography of a castaway marooned for 28 years on an uninhabited island. It has been considered one of the first English novels and is one of the most published books in history. Crusoe becomes self-sufficient using material salvaged from shipwrecks and endures cannibals, earthquakes, and mutineers before his final rescue. He rescues a native who has escaped from cannibals and names him Friday in reference to the day of the week he was found. The book's plot is believed to be based on the story of the real-life castaway Alexander Selkirk.

National Serpent Day
- In cold climates like Scotland, snakes hibernate during winter. They disappear into their holes in the earth like the sleeping roots of plants and trees. On National Serpent Day, a strange old custom documented by Alexander Carmichael included beating the earth with a piece of peat in a sock while reciting a rune. No doubt this practice was meant to awaken the sleeping serpents and therefore the land to let them know spring is coming and it is time to wake up.

span style="font-weight: bold;">National Baked Alaska Day
- The history of Baked Alaska dates back to the 1800s when it was named after the new territory of Alaska. The newest territory, being a frozen asset was impetuous of the dessert which is frozen to the core also. Earlier than this, an American physicist named Benjamin Thompson claimed credit for creating the dessert when trying to determine the heat resistance of egg whites. It was his version of the dessert which prompted the name of omelet surprise.

National Freedom Day
- Celebrating freedom from slavery, and recognizes America is a symbol of freedom. Established in 1948, to remind us America stands for and is a symbol of freedom for all people. The roots of this special day come directly from the end of slavery, and the signing of the 13th amendment outlawing slavery.
