I don't know about you but I love a reason to celebrate (obviously!). One of my favorite things are all the silly national days that float around! They may seem insignificant, but they are much bigger than they seem! They give us a reason to pause, think about something fun, and generally give us a good excuse to indulge in whatever is being celebrated that day. Because really, what kind of person would you be if you didn't honor National Donut day by eating a donut?!
Here are 8 reasons to pause and celebrate during the month of December..in between all of the holiday shopping, wrapping, and partying of course!
December 1st: Bartender Appreciation Day!
Because it takes mad skills to shake that shaker without getting covered in cosmos! Show them some extra appreciation at happy hour today and buy them a drink!
December 4th: National Cookie Day!
Chocolate Chip...Oatmeal Raisin...Sugar Cookies oh my! You don't need to be a baker to enjoy this one! Stop by your store, grab one or two and don't forget the milk!
December 8th: National Brownie Day!
Are you an edge or middle person? Who cares...have some of both! Want to add a little holiday cheer? Add a dash of peppermint in the mix, cozy up to the fire, and enjoy!
December 9th: Gingerbread Decorating Day!
Get your gingerbread skills ready! Today is the day for you to create your masterpiece! I don't know about you but mine always look like they weathered a 9.0 magnitude earthquake when I'm done but hey, you can't not try right?!
