Today we celebrate:

National Tempura Day – Everything tastes better dipped in a flour and water batter and deep fried. This is a popular Japanese dish that originally came to them via Portuguese traders and missionaries.

National Old Rock Day – Today is a day for finding, excavating, or just appreciating old rocks of all kinds, including fossils and gemstones. For the adventurous among you, there are lots of rock related activities for adults and children that I found on this web site: For the less adventurous and somewhat naughty among you, simply pull out that coal that Santa left in your stocking and admire it for a while.

I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day – Today is a day of action. Whatever it is that upsets you...your job, your hair, your weight, your love life, your children leaving their shoes and coats right in the doorway as they come is the day to fix it. Look for a new job, get a new hair cut, go to the gym and start a diet, kick the bozo to the curb and go out and find a new bozo, make your children wash the floor whenever you trip on one of their shoes. Whatever it is that is making you crazy....find a way to fix it!

Harlem Globetrotter's Day – On this day in 1927, the Harlem Globetrotter's played their first game. That first season they won 101 out of 117 games. For more fascinating information about this team named after Harlem in NYC see:

Orthodox Christmas – Orthodox Christians working from the Gregorian calendar celebrate Christmas today. Those of us who celebrate on December 25 are using the Julian calendar, which supposedly predates the Gregorian calendar but I don't know anyone old enough to verify that information.

To celebrate today, sing Christmas carols while you search your yard for interesting rocks. Then have some tempura while you watch old Harlem Globetrotter's cartoons. Then decide what it is that you just can't stand anymore and fix it.
