Welcome to November! We’re in the home stretch to the end of the year now, and gearing up for the holiday season. Our weather went from summer to winter literally overnight, when we dropped 40 degrees between the Wednesday and Thursday highs, so it was a scramble to find everyone’s sweaters and jackets. Maybe that means we’ll get some snow for Christmas this year.
Speaking of Christmas, it's just one of the holidays you can celebrate in December. Take a look at some of these other special days!
1. December 3 - National Roof Over Your Head Day
As the weather turns, let’s all be thankful that we have shelter. What makes it a home for you?
2. December 5 - Repeal Day
In 1919, some very silly people thought to ban alcohol in the United States. Fourteen years later, everyone came to their senses.
3. December 8 - International Children's Day
Whether your kids are into anime, video games, television, movies… you can get them their own mug to celebrate it.
4. December 13 - Violin Day
I’ve always enjoyed hearing a violin, either in classical music or modern rock.
5. December 18 - Bake Cookies Day
It’s a holiday tradition! Calories don’t count this month, right?
6. December 21/23 - Forefathers Day/Roots Day (genealogy)
Americans like to announce what countries their ancestors are from. Any surprises in your search?
7. December 25 – Christmas
The big one. What do you enjoy? What do your friends and family like? We have a whole lot of mugs, so chances are good that you’ll find a great gift!
As you can see, there are lots of special days to celebrate in December. Remember: we have a two week turnaround on orders, so get yours in early to make sure you get it in time.
