December Days to Celebrate with kids

Eat a Red Apple Day – Dec 1

Santas’ List Day – Dec 4

Bathtub Party Day – Dec 5

Whether this means you get a nice relaxing bath or your child get a fun day in the bath (or both) this is definitely a day worth celebrating during the hectic holiday season.

Put on your own Shoes Day – Dec 6

Letter Writing Day – Dec 7

National Brownie Day – Dec 8

Christmas Card Day – Dec 9

Do you still send out holiday cards? Here’s a day set aside for you to sit down and write out your holiday cards.

Human Rights Day – Dec 10

National Noodle Ring Day – Dec 11

Gingerbread House Day – Dec 12

No matter how old my children get, this is one tradition we never skip. As they get older, I worry less about precut gingerbread molds that fit perfectly and hand them all the supplies and let them go: graham crackers, butter knife, frosting, and candy toppings. The top of a pizza box works well for the base.

Ice Cream Day – Dec 13

Roast Chestnuts Day – Dec 14

National Lemon Cupcake Day – Dec 15

National Chocolate Covered Anything Day – Dec 16

National Maple Syrup Day – Dec 17

Bake Cookies Day – Dec 18

Oatmeal Muffin Day – Dec 19

Go Caroling Day – Dec 20

The top caroling songs (if you’re so brave) are “We wish you a Merry Christmas”, “Joy to the World”, and “Silent Night”.

National Re-Gifting Day – Thursday before Christmas

I regift all year long. No one has ever known and it saves lots of money. Curious how? Check this out. It’s not too late to start.

National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day – Third Friday in December

National Egg Nog Day – Dec 24

National Pumpkin Pie Day – Dec 25

National Candy Cane Day – Dec 26

National Thank-you Note Day – Dec 26

Here’s a day that’s lost and should be brought back. Serve some hot chocolate for yourself and your kids and see if you can all sit down even for 30 minutes and write some old-fashioned thank you notes for your presents.

Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day – Dec 27

Make snowflakes with your kids for after Christmas decorations now that the presents are gone. For extra sparkle, use a glue stick then sprinkle gold and silver glitter on top after cutting them out.

National Chocolate Candy Day – Dec 28

Bacon Day – Dec 30

National Champagne Day – Dec 31
