December 15th is...

December.jpgCat Herders Day
- If you can say that your job — or even your life — is like trying to herd cats, then this day is for you — with our sympathy.

National Lemon Cupcake Day
- Lemon cupcakes are delicious tangy desserts that delight our hearts all through the year although it is the national lemon cupcake day that celebrates the tiny delectable morsel in style.

Bill of Rights Day
- In the United States, the Bill of Rights is the name by which the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are known. They were introduced by James Madison to the First United States Congress in 1789 as a series of constitutional amendments, and came into effect on December 15, 1791, when they had been ratified by three-fourths of the States.

Underdog Day
- celebrated annually since 1976 to honor unsung heroes such as Sherlock Holmes’ Dr. Watson or Robinson Crusoe’s Man Friday. It also celebrates those who “came from behind” to make names for themselves.

Sleep Comfort Day
- How important is sleep? It's essential to our total well-being. Sleep helps us feel healthier, think sharper, enjoy life more fully.

National Firefighters Day
- Our Nation offers special thanks to its firefighters on December 15th, "National Firefighters Day." Let this be a day to remember the men and women who protect us and who have given their lives in the line of duty. They all are heroes. By honoring them, we pay special tribute to the spirit of community and unselfishness that is such an integral part of their character. Firefighters are inspirational examples for all of us and are worthy of our highest praise for their tireless devotion to fulfilling their sacred responsibilities to society.

National Firefighters day is a good thing and lemon cupcake day is delicious.

I wasn't at work today so spent most of it wrapping presents. I now have to hide them as we never put them under the tree because Santa brings them on Christmas Eve eventhough DD knows the truth. Before I wrapped them they were scattered all round the house ie hidden in different cupboards. One is hidden under the tree and the others for us are in 3 or 4 bags in other rooms.
