Today we celebrate:

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.

National Ice Cream Day – This day is a little confusing, Italo Marchiony applied for a patent on a machine that makes ice cream cups on Sept. 13, 1903. He received the patent on December 15th so whoever decided on this day may have inadvertently mixed the two dates because December 13th is definitely the day selected for this celebration, but it has nothing to do with the creation of ice cream, that I can tell.

National Violin Day – We have been celebrating violins on this day for a while now and it was on this day in 2010 that Violinist Ben Lee broke the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Violin Player. He played 14 notes per second which is pretty darn fast.
