Bizarre Days

There is a holiday every day and since I am so over my head with Christmas season stuff and I am sure everyone else is too. So here are a few other things to celebrate to get your mind off christmas crazyness.

December 11 is . . . . National Noodle Ring Day (and my PaPa's birthday)

December 12 is . . . . National Ding-A-Ling Day (wtf is that?)

December 16 is . . . . National Chocolate Covered Anything Day ( I am so cool with that!)

December 21 is . . . . Look At The Bright Side Day, National Flashlight Day, National French Fried Shrimp Day, and Hamburger Day (thats a big day!)

December 26 is . . . . National Whiners Day (for all you babies that didn't get what you want on Christmas)

December 28 is . . . . Card Playing Day and National Chocolate Day (I guess Chocolate needs several days a month.)

December 31 is . . . . Unlucky Day (That sucks cause thats my anniversary too, not unlucky for me)

Ok so focus on the silly holidays if the upcoming big one gets overwhelming.

Here's a pic or 2 to remember the sweet parts of the holiday season.
