Today we celebrate:

National Pumpkin Pie Day – I usually think of this pie at Thanksgiving, but many people love it at Christmas as well.

A'Phabet Day or No "L" Day – This is a day for people who want to send greetings to their friends but do not want to send Christmas cards. So they send out cards that list the letters in the alphabet, leaving a space where the L would normally be. I find this to be…...interesting. Yes, let’s go with that.

Christmas – This is a day when Christians around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who was not actually born on December 25th, as far as we can tell. It has been celebrated on this day since 336 AD because Roman Emperor Constantine said it should be. Then, not long after that, Pope Julius I declared that the birth of Jesus should be celebrated on this day every year. Every country has different traditions for their celebrations but most involve a star, and giving gifts. Non-religious based celebrations, that for many are as much a part of Christmas as the religious traditions, may include Santa Claus or St. Nicholas, flying reindeer, a fireplace, enormous socks and an indoor tree.
