Violin Day, St. Lucia Day, Cocoa Day, more

December 13th, 2011, is Violin Day, St. Lucia Day, Republic Day (Malta), Ice Cream Day, and National Cocoa Day.

Violin Day celebrates a stringed instrument that is equally at home playing classical, country, or pop.

St. Lucia Day is celebrated in Sweden and Denmark today, with children spreading cheer through hospitals, nursing homes, and such, singing the "Santa Lucia Song." The girl chosen to portray Lucia wears a white robe and a headpiece with candles.

Malta observes Republic Day on December 13th, commemorating the formation of its republic in 1974.

If you don't mind the cold, embrace Ice Cream Day today. Otherwise, wait until the third Sunday in July, for National Ice Cream Day.

If the thought of ice cream in December gives you the shivers, how about an alternative? December 13th is National Cocoa Day. Celebrate with your biggest mug and several marshmallows.
