Gingerbread Houses, Egg Nog and Crossword Puzzles

December overflows with family events and holiday cheer. With Hanukkah and Christmas taking center stage, it's sometimes easy to forget the lesser-known celebrations.

Holiday CheerNot to worry … DaVinci Roofscapes is here to remind you of the fun and unusual festivities you can celebrate this month.

If you're in the mood for fun all month long, December is National Tie Month, Exotic Fruits Month, National Egg Nog Month and, let's not forget, National Fruitcake Month. If you'd like to eat healthier, it's also National Tomato Month and National Winter Squash Month!

December 16th is National Chocolate-Covered-Anything Day and the 15th is Cat Herders Day! You can also go online to see the National Gingerbread House Competition winners at the Grove Park Inn to celebrate Gingerbread House Day on the 12th.

And if all this celebrating is too much for you, settle in on December 21 with a crossword puzzle … and relax on Crossword Puzzle Day!
