Happy Holly-daze Everyone!

Good morning my weary elves. Today is Friday, December 25, 2017. Today is the 360th Day of the year, and 6 days remain.

Today’s reasons to celebrate are:

Christmas 

Christmas is celebrated every year on December 25th. Duh! Contrary to the beliefs of some in our society, Christmas is still a Christian holiday, marking the birth of Jesus. 
Christmas is a joyous occasion celebrated with loved ones near and far. The festivities often include a Christmas feast, gift exchanges, church celebrations, a visit from Santa Claus, and holiday parties. Christmas is the biggest holiday of the year, and it is celebrated in most countries around the world.  It has both a strong religious and traditional meaning. No matter how “commercialized” Christmas becomes, we should never forget the true meaning of the holiday. In case you have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, use this link, or your bible, to refresh your memory.
At long last, the hustle and bustle are over. Christmas has arrived whether you like it or not. It’s time to relax and enjoy the day with your loved ones. If you aren’t prepared, don’t worry, it’s too late to do anything about it now anyway. What’s done is done. 
Factoid:  Oliver Cromwell banned Christmas carols and parties in England from 1649 to 1660.  He thought that Christmas should be a solemn holiday and the only celebrations should be church services. Obviously, it didn’t last too long as Christmas soon became a secular holiday. 
I won’t even bother explaining to you how to celebrate Christmas. All families have their onw traditions. So,  I’ll end this by wishing each and everyone of you the Merriest Christmas ever.

No “L” Day 

No “L” Day is celebrated every year on December 25th. Although the origins of No “L” Day are obscure, this holiday is almost certainly inspired by a Christmas card sent by film director and noted punster Alfred Hitchcock to some of his friends in 1973. In his now famous Christmas card, Mr. Hitchcock merely wrote the words “A Very Happy”, then listed the letters of the alphabet in order; except omitting the letter “L”. Hence the card could be read as “A Very Happy Noel” (no “L”).
No “L” is obviously a pun on the word noel and No “L” Day is a way of celebration for people who do not want to send traditional Christmas cards, but who still want to acknowledge the holidays and send greetings to their friends and family.
To celebrate this No “L” Day, learn more about orthography – the part of language study concerned with letters and spelling.

National Pumpkin Pie Day  

National Pumpkin Pie Day is celebrated annually on December 25th. Oddly enough, celebrates pumpkin pie. Pumpkin itself is a symbol of harvest and comes into season in the early fall. Pumpkin pie recipes were found dating as far back as seventeenth-century English cookbooks. A century later pumpkin pie recipes began to appear in American cookbooks as well. Pumpkin pie became a familiar addition to holiday tables in the early seventeenth-century when early settlers brought it to America.
Pumpkin pie is one of America’s favorite pies and a perennial favorite around the holidays season; especially on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is also prominently featured at Halloween, although not in the form of a pie.
The pie consists of a pumpkin-based custard baked in a single pie shell. The pie is generally flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
Celebrating National Pumpkin Pie Day couldn’t be easier. Simply cap off your Christmas feast with a sliver or two of Pumpkin pie.
