December is Hi Neighbor Month, National Stress Free Family Holiday Month, Bingo's Birthday Month, and most importantly Read A New Book Month.
Every day brings its own holiday. We all know the major holidays, but you may not know some of the more “minor” holidays that take place in December.

Here is a list to make you aware of some:
December 1 is National Pie Day

December 4 is National Wear Brown Shoes Day

December 6 is National Gazpacho Day, as well as Mitten Tree Day

December 13 is Ice Cream and Violins Day

December 16 is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

December 19 is Oatmeal Muffin Day

December 26 is National Whiners Day

December 27 is National Fruitcake Day
