We hope you had a fabulous Buy a Donut Day (October 30th). Now, we turn our sites to out-of-the-ordinary days to celebrate in November and December. Fill your stapler, play Monopoly, find out what a jukebox is, and wear a plunger on your head! We’re not making this stuff up!

Thanks to HolidaysandObservances.com for giving us more excuses to celebrate and have fun!
