Today we celebrate:

National Day of the Horse – Designated by the U.S. Congress in 2004, and celebrated on the second Saturday in December, this is a day to celebrate horses. If you have one or more horses, give them an extra treat or a long rub down or a nice long trail ride. Whatever your horse enjoys doing the most, see that he/she gets it today. This country would still be back in the dark ages without the hard work of horses in our history.

Festival of Unmentionable Thoughts - This is another day that I was not able to find any information about.  But since it features unmentionable thoughts, I think it’s best that we each keep them to ourselves.

National Ambrosia Day – This dish is not called “food of the gods” for nothing. It's pretty heavenly if you ask me. Fruit, marshmallows, whipped cream, do I need to say more?

Gingerbread House Day – This is a day to make a good, old-fashioned gingerbread house with your children. Gingerbread walls, frosting for glue and candy for decorations. Fun to make and really fun to eat.

National Ding-A-Ling Day – I'm not really sure what this day is all about. My research was only able to find a suggestion that this day is about celebrating the internal ding-a-ling in all of us. I've certainly got a little bit of ding-a-ling in me and I'm sure that at least some of you have a little bit in you as well. Of course, I guess that depends on what you consider to be a ding-a-ling.

National 12-hour Fresh Breath Day – This is a day to work on your breath. If you have bad breath, you might want to consider scheduling an appointment with your dentist because it could indicate a problem that needs to be fixed. Otherwise, use some mouthwash and brush those teeth and you should have great smelling breath for a few hours. at least.

National Cocoa Day – This is a day to sit back and enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate. Hmmmm...I can smell that chocolate now. I like mine with mini marshmallows in it.

International Shareware Day – Celebrated on the second Saturday in December, this is a day to appreciate and support the people who create the computer software that is available free or for just a small fee.

Poinsettia Day – On this day in 1851, Joel Roberts Poinsett, an American botanist, physician and Minister to Mexico, died. Several years prior to his death, in 1828, he sent cuttings of the plant we now call Poinsettia from his location in Southern Mexico to his home in Charleston, SC, in order to protect and preserve them.
