St. Nicholas Day
Who is St. Nicholas?
Known for living out Isaiah 1:17  the best way to celebrate this day is to donate your time, resources, and/or finances to local community centers that assist the "least of these." And in the spirit of stockings why not donate adult and children socks to shelters in the area as well?

Mitten Tree Day
Read The Mitten Tree and The Mitten
This is the perfect day to hold a mitten (and gloves, hats, scarves) drive to donate to your local rescue mission and/or shelters.
Give the gift of warmth this year!







Put on Your Own Shoes Day
Since the reason for this day is a mystery I'm going to make a suggestion. :)  
Many people in third world, underdeveloped countries don't have a pair of shoes to call their own. So why not donate to an organization today that provides shoes for the "least of these?"
Shoes for Orphan Souls
Soles4Souls
Goodie Two Shoes Foundation
The Shoe Bank
Heart and Sole: The MSUCOM Shoe Project
Donate Your Old (Gently Used) Shoes

National Gazpacho Day
I heard Gazpacho is a cold soup, is that true? What's that all about?
I first had Gazpacho about 10 years ago. I was hesitant at first but when it hit my taste buds I became a believer! This is the only recipe I have ever used to make it, I just love it!
