I will choose one winner at random to win a surprise package!

You have until 12-15-11 to post your comment to be entered to win!

Good Luck Everyone
Happy December!!!!


  1. we need a decorate our tree day. Please remind me when it's cover anything in chocolate day - I need to make some Christmas gifts and goodies that day!

  2. I always celebrate Last minute shoppers day! ROTFL! I would like December first to be Celebrate the end of your shopping list day! Sigh, a girl can wish, right?

  3. There should be a craft, decorate your house day lol

  4. I think I'd like to celebrate national "Give me a break with all of these holidays" day! Wowzers!

    As a sign language interpreter I can honestly say that I had no idea that there was a National Deaf Heritage week!! So cool!

    How about National "sit back and take a load off day" day ... that one sounds good :)

  5. This is an awesome list! I like that there is an official Festivus Appreciation Day on the 23rd...Festivus for the Rest of Us! Love some Seinfeld!!

  6. I'd like a "please don't interrupt my crafting by wanting to be fed
    day !) seems like someone or something is always wanting food!

  7. I vote for a "stay in your pajamas all day" holiday! Or maybe a "mulled cider" day! Thanks for the great list, Roni!

  8. Hi Roni -

    After Christmas there should be a Holiday called "Play with your Presents Day". There should also be a holiday called "The Elve's come in and put away the Christmas decorations day" - LOL!! I never have a problem putting up the tree, its taking it down that we keep putting off!
    And lastly, December 30th should be declared a Holiday. It is my wedding anniversary. This year we will be married 39 years! Time flies when you are having fun.

    P.S. I think we should have a Roni Johnson Day too.

  9. How about a "Secret Day" unknown to anyone else...sometime around Dec. 1 or 2.

  10. how about a *official take a nap day* ... we're gonna need it!

  11. Dec 12th looks goooood.... gingerbread and poinsettias!! But I'll have to sneak a cup of cocoa a day early since cocoa day isnt til the 13th. lol Thanks for the fun monthly listings you do and the giveaways.

  12. I think we need a MeDontno Day! A day you don't have to know what you need to do, a take it easy , stay in your pjs day! My granddaughter answers with this
    " Me Don't No " she says it real fast! SO what do you want to do?
    Me Don't no

  13. Roni, darnit, I'm getting addicted to these monthly posts. Glad you got your electricity back on and Cecil is funnnnnnny. xoxo

  14. Oops, forgot to add my suggestion! I think there shoulda coulda be a National Holiday Lights Family Night, where everyone gets out as a family and goes around to look at neighborhood Christmas lights!

  15. I think Dec. 13th should be the official "The 12 Days of Christmas Tags by Tim Holtz" Party Day. Thanks for the detailed info on your take on the two toned pinecone-the illustrations were GREAT. Your back yard looks like ours up here in Alaska-it is beautiful to look at, but not so nice to shovel and drive in!!! Our three Shi Tzu dogs and our one Yorkie have to wait until we clear paths for them to run when we get a lot of snow.
    Happy December and the best of the Holiday Season to you and yours.

  16. There was some very good suggestions for naming a day. I wonder how one would go about creating one. I think I like the idea about celebrating Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas Day. I talked to my Mom last night and told her she needed to get over to his blog site! She's going to enjoy each and every day!

  17. What I'd like to have is an "International Play and Giggle like a 3 year old Day." The world is far to serious lately. We need to lighten up a little.

  18. Let's have a "Finished with the Decorations and Shopping" day! I love your lists! I can hardly believe my eyes at all the snow you had. Glad your electricity is back!!

  19. I like a crafty day. One day only for you with al your wonderful stamps, inks en al the other crafty things. Drinking tea or koffie, with your favorite music. No work. Relax...and create.. thats magic.

  20. I don't see the 12 tags of Christmas on the 1st...isn't that a celebration???? should be a national holiday!
    So I say we should have a Timmy Day, for the season just wouldn't be the season without the man himself!

  21. How about a "Dogs that love snow, but are not Sled Dogs" Day? I have 2 rescues that love the snow like yours do!The one that is smaller literally "swims" through the snow until it is worn down enough to jump, hop or run through.It cracks me up every time LOL!

  22. I think we should have a make homemade gifts with your kids day or give your shopping parents a break day. My teens add to their Christmas list daily, it seems. lol Thank you for sharing the monthly lists of little known celebrations. Have a great weekend.

  23. Although all of the chocolate themed days are tempting, I'll have to vote for the Peace Meditation Day...the world can really use it!

  24. december 3rd is my mum's birthday so I really like give a gift day!!! maybe December should be full or RAK days - it would be great to be giving and receiving at Christmas time!! xx

  25. Dec. 26-Pay it forward day
    Pajama day

  26. I think there should be a stress free day on December 20th so we can slow down and enjoy more of what the season has to offer.

  27. I believe I will celebrate National Chocolate-covered Anything Day on December 16, since that is my birthday. I'm thinking of trying chocolate-covered brussels sprouts at Golden Corral...

  28. This may be a bit strange but I would want a celebrate life and death day.-only for me of course- My daughter died the same day my son was born--three years later. So I would celebrate his life and her life as an angel.

  29. I'd love a "Crafty Crap Day" hehe

  30. I vote for "Lets visit Roni day" I would love to craft with you. Day? it would be a weekend at least. Or lets have a swap day anything you thought you had to have but never used gets swapped.

  31. I would say 1rst of december being the official cardmaking day; this way no excuses for not having time to make christmas cards!

  32. How fun! I think we need an official stay in your comfy pj's and craft day!

  33. I would like to see - Draw a Picture of a Stranger Day

  34. We need a day to celebrate the end of it all - the tree down and put away, the main room back to its old self, no more holiday dishes out, just a whew we lived through it all!

  35. I agree that it would be fun to create our own "day"! Mine would be "Leave me alone so I can scrap without you needing something Day"!!! Maybe next year! But I do like Dec. 30th...BACON DAY! I love BACON!

  36. I would like to celebrate "calorie-free holiday food day" LOL!!

  37. I would love a "Stay In Bed and Don't Worry About Anything" Day. This would especially come in handy right before I start to freak that my gift buying hasn't even started! The next day would have to be "Get the boxes out of the Attic Day".
    I was going to suggest a "Get Inky" day, but then EVERY day is a get inky day around here!

  38. How about Dec. 1 being "Wait until December to play Christmas music - NOT before Thanksgiving"!!

  39. I love Christmas! I would like 31 days of Christmas, which I would also like to be off work the entire month of December.

  41. i noticed that one important event is missing from your list "Our Lady of Guadelupe" on December 12.

  42. I think we should add an
    "Eat Fudge and Christmas Cookies All Day Long Day".

  43. I think we need a "return/reuse/recycle" day between Christmas and New Years. A day to take your tree to the recycling center, return or donate gifts you know you won't use, and time to find a way to reuse all of that gift wrap and packaging.

    Still in love with your awesome blog!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
