Pins and Needles Day sounds like just another novelty holiday, celebrating either anticipation or that feeling you get when your circulation has been cut off. Actually, the holiday commemorates the anniversary of the opening performance of the only union-produced musical, called Pins and Needles.
Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas. In 2011, Advent occurs from November 27th through December 24th. Christians anticipate the celebration of Jesus' birth (even though most scholars agree Jesus was not technically born on December 25th).
If you've had enough pumpkin pie for a while, or if you've simply run out, try something different today in honor of National Bavarian Cream Pie Day.
