Daily Holidays - December 27

National Fruit Cake Day To celebrate this day is easy. Gather the family together in the kitchen and make the fruitcake together, with fruits and nuts that everyone will enjoy. Then, after the fruitcake is done baking, serve it up to everyone and perhaps huddle around on the couch to watch a holiday movie to add to the holiday spirit that surrounds the month of December. Fruitcake may have had a humble beginning somewhere, but as time goes on, the dish becomes more popular, and sometimesÖ Not in the way anyone would expect it to. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/fruitcake-day/

Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day it all starts with learning the basics of folding paper to create a snowflake, available through multiple websites and videos throughout the web. From there itís a simple matter of being creative with your scissors and seeing what results. With practice you will be able to make truly stunning designs that will serve to enhance your holiday spirit. Donít think it ends there, with the encroaching Valentineís Day on the horizon, you can take this art to the next level and create intricate lace-like heart streamers to beautify your home and add a little romance to the holiday. Then itís on to bunnies and eggs for Easter! Make Cut-Out Snowflakes Day encourages you to learn the art again, and then carry it throughout the year! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/make-cut-out-snowflakes-day/

Visit The Zoo Day If animals are your passion then Visit the Zoo Day gives you a great opportunity to really get close to some of the most intriguing and engaging species on the planet. No matter where you live, your usually not far from a zoo, so why not go for a visit and find out more? Some people think of zoos only as cruel prisons where countless animals are kept, bored to death, from the moment theyíre born till the moment they die. But these days zoos are at the forefront of much of the research which goes on into animal behaviour and how best to protect vulnerable animals from extinction. Many zoos have breeding programmes running, where they work with other facilities around the world to increase the numbers of endangered populations. In most of the better zoos around the globe, the enclosures the animals are kept in are relatively roomy and attempt to mirror an animalís natural environment as closely as possible. Some zoos house indigenous species as well as or rather than those from further away. All in all, zos are fascinating (and often smelly) places where we can get a lot closer to nature than we would ever have the chance to otherwise, and thatís definitely worth trying at least once or twice in life. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/visit-the-zoo-day/

I used to use this site with my students. They loved it!

(I'm one of those strange people who actually likes fruitcake! LOL)
