Today we celebrate:

Call A Friend Day - This is a day to reach out and touch a friend through the phone.  Call and tell them that you are thinking about them and ask them how they are doing.

National Chocolate Candy Day - While there are a few of us who do not care for chocolate, the vast majority of Americans love it.  Today you have my permission to enjoy as much chocolate candy as you have the ability to legally get access to.  I would recommend you don’t eat so much that you get sick because that would ruin your enjoyment.

Holy Innocents Day – This is a day when Christians remember all of the young male children in the Bethlehem area that King Herod ordered executed in an attempt to kill the baby King of the Jews whom he believed would attempt to take his throne. We don't know how many were killed and some historians dispute that it happened at all.  But then there seems to be hardly a single event in history that historians don’t find some reason to dispute in some manner.

Card Playing Day – This is a day to relax with friends and/or family and play cards together. After the hectic pace of the holidays, you are due for a nice relaxing break.

Pledge of Allegiance Day – On this day in 1945, the United States Congress recognized the Pledge of Allegiance as an American flag salute. The original version was written by Baptist minister Francis Bellamy somewhere around 1900 give or take a few years. It was revised to include the words “under God” in 1950.
