Flake Appreciation Day, Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day, more

December 18th, 2012, is International Answer the Phone like Buddy the Elf Day, Flake Appreciation Day, Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day, International Migrants Day, National Roast Suckling Pig Day, and Bake Cookies Day.

International Answer the Phone like Buddy the Elf Day requires you to channel your inner Will Ferrell. He played Buddy the Elf in the 2003 film, Elf.

Flake Appreciation Day is a time to celebrate dantruff, if you choose, but most of us will choose to admire crystalline, six-sided wonders that fall from the sky in cold weather. Here's a tutorial to help you create stunning paper snowflakes:

Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day is a holiday to celebrate at your own discretion. At least use a new plunger, please, and be sure to duck through doorways.

The United Nations supports International Migrants Day on December 18th. In 2011 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wrote: "When their rights are violated, when they are marginalized and excluded, migrants will be unable to contribute either economically or socially to the societies they have left behind or those they enter. However, when supported by the right policies and human rights protections, migration can be a force for good for individuals as well as for countries of origin, transit and destination."

I don't know about you, but I'm too intimidated to celebrate National Roast Suckling Pig Day. If you do roast a pig today, especially a suckling pig, please invite me to sample! I'll bring dessert.

Today is Bake Cookies Day. If you took my advice back on National Cookie Day, all you have to do today is pop some dough in the oven. Sweet!
