Today we celebrate:

Holiday Food Drive For Needy Animals Day - This is a day to gather dog and cat food and deliver it to animal shelters, food banks and Veterinary clinics near you.  There are lots of people out there who cannot afford to buy food for their families, let alone their pets, and they rely on donations to keep from starving.  Open your hearts and even if you can only donate a little bit, it will help some furry friend who is dependent on humans for their survival.

National Noodle-Ring Day – A noodle ring is dish that was very popular fifty or sixty years ago. It was made by mixing ketchup, eggs, noodles, Worcestershire sauce and cheese and then baking it in a dish shaped like a ring. Then before you serve it you fill the center with something like creamed chicken, vegetables or some such thing. I have never had one and it's not something that we see much of anymore but you can go retro today and make one for your family.

International Mountain Day – Designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003, this is a day to celebrate and encourage sustainable mountain development.

UNICEF Birthday – The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) was established by the United Nations after World War II on this day in 1946. The purpose was to provide support to children living in areas devastated by the War. After that problem was solved, UNICEF branched out to include children in other troubled countries and it is still going strong today.

Official Lost and Found Day - Celebrated on the second Friday in December, this is a day to spend a little extra time, effort and thought to search for items you have lost and to find owners for items you have found.  If you think about your lost items carefully, and rationally, you may decide that you no longer need the item in question and you can stop searching for it. This day was created by Official Lost and Found Day.
