Paraskevidekatriaphobics, beware! Today is Friday the 13th. Stay off of the the thirteenth floor, avoid breaking mirrors, stay away from black cats. Pull the blankets over your head and spend the day in bed, if you feel totally unlucky and vulnerable.

The second Friday in December is National Salesperson's Day. Do something special for the talented salesperson in your employ, or for the insightful salesperson who helped you find just the right item.

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

Asarah B'Tevet is a minor fast day in the Hebrew Calendar, observed on the tenth day of the month of Tevet.

St. Lucia Day is celebrated in Sweden, Denmark, and Finland 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.
