Today we celebrate:

Free Shipping Day – This day was begun in 2007 by Luke and Maisie Knowles with the intention of extending the online shopping season. There was a time when Cyber Monday was generally the most popular day for online shopping. After that, most people were afraid they wouldn't get their items in time for Christmas so they didn't shop online again. Now, Free Shipping Day is another very popular day for online shopping. I was not able to find out from their web site,, exactly when this day is to be celebrated this year. Some other sites declared it to be on this day, others said it is tomorrow on December 18th. Still other stores hold their own free shipping deals not related to this specific day.

Pan American Aviation Day – This day celebrates the first successful flight by the Wright Brothers. See Wright Brothers Day below. The purpose of this day is to increase interest in aviation in all of the American countries in order to expand cultural development and increase communication between all of these countries.

Wright Brothers Day – On this day in 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright finally succeeded in their endeavor to invent a mechanically propelled aircraft that is capable of flight. History was made and aircraft have made one heck of a lot of progress in just 110 years.

National Maple Syrup Day – Well, if you're going to have maple syrup today, you have to have something delicious to have with it like pancakes or french toast or waffles.

International Talk With A Fake British Accent Day – This day was created by Louise Gale and Derek Nisbet, founders of the Big Apple Brits. They have planned some events in NYC to celebrate this day and everyone is encouraged to talk with a British accent for these events.

To celebrate today, talk with a British accent all day while you shop online for some maple syrup. Make sure that it will be shipped to you free by airplane from another North or South American country.  Good luck finding maple syrup made in a South American country.
