5 Unique Days to Celebrate in December
There are plenty of unofficial holidays year-round. Here are five unique days to celebrate in December in case you run out of reasons to celebrate, or if you just want to try something new! Here are our 5 favorites from December.
December 5th – Prohibition Repeal Day
What do you get when you combine history and a reason to celebrate? You might be surprised to learn that December 5th is the anniversary of the 21st Amendment, which repealed prohibition back in 1933.
If you’ve ever wanted an almost tailor-made reason to celebrate, then grab your friends and celebrate the 21st Amendment at one of the fantastic lounges in NYC.
December 13th – National Ice Cream Day
It’s December, and most people are likely thinking about things that bring warmth and comfort such as hot cocoa, coffee, scarves and blankets, and long socks.
All of this makes December 13th a truly special day as National Ice Cream Day. Make your day ice-themed with an outing for ice cream, ice skating, ice fishing, or even a trip to see ice sculptures if there are any special events in your town.
If nothing else, you’ll get to enjoy some tasty ice cream with your friends! And, with the weather being chilly, you won’t have to worry about your ice cream melting before you’re finished eating.
December 19th – Look for an Evergreen Day
Some people like to get their Christmas trees early in the season – sometimes as early as Black Friday. If you’re like others, however, you may not have a tree in your home yet. December 19th is the perfect day to grab that perfect evergreen to set up in your home.
Make an event of this momentous day and get a hold of some holiday-themed music, snacks, and drinks to really get into the decorating spirit.
December 21st – Humbug Day
Tired of the Christmas spirit? Too much Holiday music getting you down? Have your friends or family told you to be ‘merry and bright’ one too many times? Wishing you could just take a day to simply feel like a humbug?
You’ll be pleased to know that December 21st is Humbug Day. This unofficial holiday is something like a sick day from celebrating the holiday spirit. Enjoy simply not celebrating the holidays for a day and avoid the music, festivities, and gift buying that comes with the season guilt-free. You’ll feel better afterwards!
Grab your holiday-weary friends and celebrate your holiday-free day!
December 23rd – Festivus
Are you non-denominational? Festivus is the perfect solution for you! This unofficial holiday is specifically geared towards people who don’t have an annual winter holiday tradition.
Inspired by the show Seinfeld, you can make this gathering a reality in your home with a few simple things. An unadorned metal pole can serve as your ‘tree’, if you want, but all you really need are some friends, food, and drink and you’ll be well on your way to celebrating Festivus.
Start an annual tradition of Festivus for your friends who don’t have a set holiday routine and invite your holiday-happy friends to the gathering too. The more, the merrier!
