There are things in life that catch us off guard and interrupt our daily lives. Today there are no Interruptions. Turn off your television, your cell phone, and your radio. Put your nose to the grindstone and focus on your work. Eliminate all things that distract you from getting your work done. There are no interruptions allowed.
At home you should keep the radio and T.V. off and sit down with your friends and family, or even just yourself and focus on your life and goals for the future. Perhaps good old-fashioned promotional game sets can help you gather your friends and family together.

Ok, so the Rockettes are not actually 75, but Radio City Music Hall is. On this day in 1932, Radio City Music Hall opened its doors to the public for the first time. Since then, millions of people have viewed the venue's famous Christmas Spectacular in Rockefeller Center. The kick line of talented women that dazzled viewers in the 1930s still entertains today - 5 times a day, 7 days a week during the Christmas season, to be exact. If that's not enough for you, promotional radios or mp3 players can keep the musical spirit going all throughout the year. Or you can check out one of it's other shows, which showcases famous names like Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton.

Today is dedicated to malcontents all over the globe--that's right Grumpies and Grumpettes, it's International Whiner's Day.
If you're unhappy with your Christmas gifts, your love life, your job, your family, your friends, your dog, your aura, your IQ, your outlook on life, or any other aspect of your existence, then take some time today to air your greivances.
Try not to run at the mouth for too long, since no one likes too big of a whiner. The key is to whine in moderation. If you feel like you absolutely HAVE to unload, make sure to vent inside a promotional journal.

I don't think that there is a way to celebrate the anniversary of a missile being launched, but hey we can try. A German scientist launched the first surface-to-surface guided missile at Britain in 1942. On the eve of Christmas, someone decided to launch a missile. How nice!
Personally I prefer a nice promotional bungee rocket. A bit less destructive and a lot more fun especially during the holidays. I hope I get some for Christmas.

For everyone who is preparing for christmas today you are allowed to release your frustrations. Get out there and be a Scrooge or a Grinch. With all the last minute christmas buying and the rush to get the most popular gift items you are sure to get angry or annoyed. Let out a giant "HUMBUG" and that will help
Unfortunately you are only allowed to use twelve "Humbugs" so save them up and use them well. I calculate that one "Humbug" every two hours should get you through the day.
Than again you may want to restrain yourself and let out your frustrations on promotional benders.

If you've never heard of Dr. Mudd, don't fret. He isn't exactly a legend in the annals of American History...but here is what he's known for.
Poor old Sammy got sentenced to life in prison for giving medical aid to a one Mr. John Wikes Booth, (of Lincoln assassination fame).
Mr. Booth WAS wearing a disguise though, so the sentencing was a bit harsh. However, fate intervened, and four years into his sentence he was pardoned by President Andrew Johnson.
If you've ever found yourself royally screwed over, I'm sure you can relate to Dr. Mudd. And if you find yourself seething with rage over such a situation, take some deep breaths and squeeze the ever-living hades out of a promotional stress ball.

I knew that something ungodly was about to unfold.
Soon after, Titanic came out in theatres, and quickly became one of the most successful movies ever. Lines of rabid teenage girls swooned over Mr. DiCaprio, while hordes of tough men proclaimed, "There's something in my eye," as they tried to hide their tears at the film's conclusion.
The movie catapulted its two main actors into stardom and brought that little gem, "My Heart Will Go On," into the every single home. It was all the rage that year and swooped up a whopping 11 Academy Awards.
To celebrate today, get a cruise-boat shaped stress ball, a couple of small dolls, and reenact the sinking scene in your bathtub. It's bound to be at least mildly entertaining.

- New Jersey is the only state where all its counties are classified as metropolitan areas.

The ancient Romans had a whole slew of gods and goddesses to worship. Today marks what used to be the special festival called Saturnalia. Saturnalia honored Saturn, the god of agriculture best known for the planet that was named after him. This particularly happy festival was ripe with merriment and good times. Occuring at the conclusion of wine-making and harvesting, the occassion would have Romans exchanging parties, making sacrifices, and switching roles with slaves.
Sounds like a blast doesn't it!?!
To honor this ancient holiday, don a toga, down a few bottles of promotional wine, and find your way to the nearest vomitorium.

Well not TODAY today, but you know, on this day like back in 1799.
Our nation's first president kicked the bucket in his home at Mount Vernon. The poor guy had been fighting some nasty respiratory illness and had been bled by doctors four times (ick).
His famous almost-last words were, "I die hard, but I am not afraid to go." His actual last words, "Tis well," were a bit less profound.
Since it would be somewhat morbid and disturbing to actually celebrate today, it would be better to keep our country's father in mind with a nice George Washington stress ball or other promotional patriotic items.

On this day, long long ago in the merry year of 1642, Captain Abel Tasman of the Dutch East India Company became the first European to lay his eyes on New Zealand.
It was quite an accomplishment, and he was able to join the ranks of other Europeans who "discovered" land that was already inhabited. He wasn't able to bask in the inherent beauty of New Zealand, however, since Maori warriors kept him from landing.
To commemorate this day, try to buy something inherently New Zealand, like a kiwi!
Or, if you'd like to try your hand at exploring the explored, pick up this promotional globe.

If you live in the big city it may be hard for you to realize just how important mountains are to our lives. Climate changes around the world effect mountains. We can see the effects of climate changes from mountain glaciers that have been retreating for years and in many cases have disappeared completely.
Mountains themselves help regulate weather. They block wind currents and change the course of storms. We celebrate International Mountain Day in order to protect our mountains from being destroyed.
Adverse climate changes are causing mountains to errode faster then they normally would. That is why having some promotional eco-friendly eco-wipes on hand would be beneficial to the environment. They can also be used to increase awareness of International Mountain Day and the plight that mountains face these days.
Have any zany, wacky holidays we might have missed? Let us know and we will write about them.

Apparently, it's unsure who first invented the cotton candy contraption, but one thing is clear about cotton candy: delicious fluff on a stick. Even if you are not particularly fond of sugary things, you have to admit that it's still pretty cool when it melts in your mouth like butter.
Cotton candy is traditionally served to the public at fairs and amusement parks. If you're like me, fairs and/or amusement parks probably terrify your socks off. However, it only makes sense that cotton candy should be available to everyone, all the time. Start a cotton candy revolution in your city or town by distributing promotional cotton candy to the masses...sweet sweet glorious piles of pink and blue sugar pillows. Or just enjoy it all to yourself. :)
If you have any stories about cotton candy, or have a favorite cotton candy flavor, let us know!

Gazpacho is a delicious cold summer soup made of tomatoes, more tomatoes...etc. It's rather curious that this traditional Spanish soup gets its own day...in December. However, there are ways to enjoy this cold soup during the freezing month of December. That's right, I'm talking about bringing on the hot sauce.
Promotional hot sauce is a great way to warm up your mouth, and consequentially the rest of your body, while you ingest a bowl of Gazpacho. It will result in this really interesting hot/cold sensation that chicken noodle soup would never be able to achieve. So forget warming up with cups of your traditional hot winter soups today, and experiment with different amounts of hot sauce in your Gazpacho instead!
WARNING: Please use hot sauce with your own discretion. Muy caliente!

Showers are old news. They are boring and provide no benefits for the soul or party opportunities. Today is the day to shake things up and try something new.
Since it's Bathtub Party Day, take a bath. Invite a few friends (or mermaids), if you like, and have a great time. Use a promotional dinosaur bath thermometers to make sure your water is just the right temperature, have wine and snacks at the ready, some good jazz music, and just relax.
Everybody deserves some time off. Bathtub Party Day is here to remind us that sometimes we just need to take it easy and get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday, otherwise busy, day.

National Dice Day is not just about commemorating the glory of dice. It goes one step further: it's all about the games. Never heard of the game "Dice"? Neither had I until today, but it's really just as simple as rolling dice! Each player takes turns rolling five dice at once, and whatever the sum is of the little black dots, 5 for example, you multiply by 100 and voila: 500 points (100x5)! There are a few more rules about how to play but they sort of complicate things and the beauty of the dice game is how simple it is.
Grab some promotional dice game products, and celebrate dice in multiple ways, from simple dice-rolling games to intellectually stimulating dice-rolling games, whatever they may be. And if you're superstitious, don't forget to blow on the dice for good luck!
