Today we celebrate:

Kwanzaa - Celebrated from today through January 1st, this is a day to honor African heritage. It was created by Maulana Karenga in 1966-1967 and ends with a feast and exchange of gifts.

National Candy Cane Day – This is a day to eat all the candy canes you have accumulated over the holiday season. I hope you are up for the challenge.

Boxing Day – Traditionally, on this day, the servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their employers. This gift was known as the “Christmas box”. Hence the term, “Boxing Day”. It is mostly observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and a few other Commonwealth countries. It is known by other names in other countries. In South Africa it was renamed Day of Goodwill about twenty years ago.

National Thank-you Note Day – Today we must sit down and write thank you notes for all of the gifts that you have received over the holidays. And yes, it is important so if you want someone to give you a gift next year, you better write a thank you note for what they gave you this year.

National Whiner's Day – I don't like this day, I hear enough whining from my children on a regular basis, I don't want to hear official whining. But once again, whoever created it didn't ask my opinion.
