National Roots Day

December 23rd

Around the Holidays, there is a natural tendency to think about families.  Lately there has been even more interest in genealogy — or our genetic backgrounds, our ancestries.   This is a great day to invite friends over.  Ask them to bring their family trees.  Talk about what we all  know, regarding our own ancestors and genealogies.   This can be a fascinating and surprising process.  Maybe you can trace your genealogy in more detail.  There are a few ways to do this.  Just look up genealogy search on the Web.  Knowing where we come from always makes for great conversation.

Ice Cream Day

December 13th

Okay, I know that a lot of you already celebrate National Ice Cream Day in July (3rd Sunday).  In fact, I know that you are aware of President Reagan’s designation of July as National Ice Cream Month.   But, for some reason, there is an Ice Cream Day in December.  Go figure!   To me, having another Ice Cream Day makes perfect sense.  We have another excuse to celebrate and enjoy one of my favorite desserts — Cookies and Cream Ice Cream!   Take a special friend out for ice cream on this day.  Always fun.   Keep up the Holiday celebrating!

Santa’s List Day

December 4th

Today, Santa and his elves come up with 2 lists.  One short list for those children that have been naughty, and a longer second list for those that have been nice.   Which list would you be on?   I suggest that you use this day to make your own gift list.   Santa can take of his lists.  You can perhaps get together with friends and family.  Get an idea of what they might want for Holiday gifts or ideas.   Celebrate the start of the Holiday Season by sharing something special, like Egg Nog Frappaccino and maybe just a few delicacies.  I like cinnamon rolls.   Remember, gifts can be actions and items.   Maybe a neighbor needs help in their yard, or assistance with a chore.   Be creative!
