Barbie and Barney Backlash Day, Chocolate-Covered Anything Day, more

December 16th, 2013, is Barbie and Barney Backlash Day, Reconciliation Day, and National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day.

Barbie and Barney Backlash Day recognizes many people's visceral dislike of Barney and/or Barbie. Celebrate or ignore, as best suits your inner child.

Reconciliation Day is a golden opportunity to reach out to someone you love - that someone who causes you to feel a pang of regret whenever you hear their name. Let bygones be bygones! You'll both be happier; your lives will be enriched.

Today is National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day. Hard to imagine anyone disliking this holiday, unless the chocolate-covered item in question is a favorite sweater, a white sofa, or perhaps garlic.
