Today we celebrate: 

Mudd Day - Dr. Samuel A. Mudd was born on this day in 1833.  He was the doctor who helped John Wilkes Booth medically after he assassinated Abraham Lincoln.  To be fair, Booth was disguised, it was right after the assassination so the good doctor might not have even known about it, and he was a doctor who was sworn to help anyone who needed it.  Any doctor probably would have done the same.  Regardless, the good doctor was sentenced to life imprisonment for his deeds. Fortunately for him, however, he was pardoned after 4 years by President Andrew Johnson.

Go Caroling Day – Who wants to wander the neighborhood singing Christmas Carols in the cold and__(insert whatever weather is happening in your area)__? Anyone? Excellent! I'll meet you outside.

International Human Solidarity Day – Created by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005 for the purpose of recognizing shared values between people in the world and using those values to fight against poverty and promote human and social development in the poorest areas of the world.

National Sangria Day – A delicious, fruity wine that is made like a punch is called Sangria because it's red and sangre is Spanish for blood. It is sweet and refreshing and good any time of year, not just during this season. It is particularly great if you're going to have a party.

To celebrate today, go caroling in your neighborhood and share Sangrias with everyone to show solidarity and pledge to help them if you see they are hurt.
