Besides the big one, there are many, many more days to celebrate this month! Most people know I am a bit of a procrastinator, and slightly grinchy when it comes to commercial Christmases, so I am looking forward to ending the year big with this month’s days to celebrate!
Can you believe we are wrapping up this year as well as this series this month? I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have! My intentions in January were to celebrate every day in one form or another, and for the most part we have done that. The past two years have taken many fun things away from us, so I have thoroughly enjoyed creating our own fun. We have also used these quirky days and notable birthdays as lighter educational opportunities. I plan to put the 12 monthly printables into one file later this month, so you can continue the celebration next year.

Small celebrations last month
November came and went so fast! Add to that a couple of small vacations we had, and poof, it’s over! We did get to celebrate some days, though. One favorite was Eat A Cranberry Day. I found a recipe that made them taste like candy! We also learned some sandwich history, enjoyed favorite fast food from Chick-Fil-A, and had some interesting conversation about what it would be like to start your own country. Of course my favorite was our little Thanksgiving excursion to Myrtle Beach, SC. We have had a tradition for several years to take a mini vacation for the holiday. Each year, we head to the mountains or the sea. I love them both, but am definitely partial to the coast.
Ideas for December
December is such a busy month for so many families, so of course no one can possibly celebrate everything. A few caught my eye as I was making this month’s list, and some can even be incorporated into your normal holiday celebrations. St. Nicholas Day is first up on the 6th, Gingerbread House Day, Cocoa Day, and Ugly Christmas Sweater Day are all fun to celebrate the first half of the month. Even after the 25th, Candy Cane and Fruitcake Day remain.
Some of the more non-traditional days I’m looking forward to are dice day (by the way, if you don’t have a Tenzi game, it would make a perfect stocking stuffer. Check out my full review here). Ever wonder what it’s like to be a time traveler? You may want to grab this long-time favorite book. If your a Humbug, like myself, there’s a day for that too! Don’t forget to check out the notable birthdays as well: Walt Disney, Clara Barton, and Steven Spielberg are all on the list. Get your FREE PRINTABLE of all the other days to celebrate in December in my Free Resource Library.
Check my Facebook, Instagram stories, and Pinterest pages, and at times MeWe. Those platforms are where I post things I come across as they happen to fall on the calendar. I’d love to hear how you’re celebrating through December! Post a pic, and be sure to tag me @homeschoolfanatic, or use the hashtag #celebratesomething. If you are a blogger, and have a great post about activities that are a good match for days to celebrate, I’d love to share your post, so drop me a link! Happy DECEMBER Celebrating!
