Today we celebrate:

Star-Spangled Music Day - This day was created by the Star Spangled Music Foundation along with the American Choral Directors Association among others, for the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the United States National Anthem.  The creators of the day would like Americans in general and school children in particular to sing the Star-Spangled Banner, along with other patriotic songs, and learn about the history and importance of the  National Anthem.  They encourage you all to post videos of your singing on various social media venues and mark them with the hashtag #Anthem200.

National Video Games Day – This is a day to celebrate the creation of the video game. They are enormously popular in every house with children and even a whole lot of houses without any children. Play video games all day today.

National Chocolate Milkshake Day – My children love milkshakes and particularly chocolate ones. Have one for yourself today.  I haven’t had a milkshake in years because I know there’s a ton of sugar and calories in those things, but since I’ve been good for so long, maybe today’s the day to cut loose for once.

International Day for South-South Cooperation – This is a day created by the General Assembly of the United Nations. In 2003 it was declared to be celebrated on the 19th of December but in 2011 the General Assembly changed the date to today. The purpose of the day is to promote cooperation between countries in the southern hemisphere. This is to support developing countries as well as countries that are fighting against depressed economies.

To celebrate today, call any friends you have in the southern hemisphere and encourage them to support their fellow southern countries. Then play video games while you drink milkshakes and sing the Star-Spangled Banner.
