National Lager Day
- To celebrate, head to your favorite pub and enjoy a refreshing brew of your favorite lager or try brewing your own! Lager yeast first emerged in the Holy Roman Empire due to a spontaneous mutation or hybridization effect. As a new variety of beer, it often had to be produced outside city walls because it faced opposition from the Catholic Church.
Dewey Decimal System Day (1876)
- The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC, also called the Dewey Decimal System) is a proprietary system of library classification developed by Melvil Dewey (born December 10, 1851) in 1876; it has been greatly modified and expanded through 22 major revisions, the most recent in 2003. This system organizes books on library shelves in a specific and repeatable order making it easy to find any book and return it to its proper place. The system is used in 200,000 libraries in at least 135 countries.
Human Right's Day (1948)
- On December 10, 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Celebrated to promote the universal human right: to live and to do so peacefully. Some of the world's occupants have this right suppressed [e.g. the right to equality]. This day was declared to raise awareness of human rights and of those who are deprived of these rights.
Nobel Peace Prize Day (1901)
- The Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, currently Thorbjørn Jagland, presents the Nobel Peace Prize in the presence of the King of Norway on December 10 each year (the anniversary of Nobel's death). The Peace Prize is the only Nobel Prize not presented in Stockholm. The Nobel laureate receives a diploma, a medal and a document confirming the prize amount.
Emily Dickinson's Birthday (1930)
- One of America's greatest poets, Emily Dickinson was born at Amherst, MA on December 10, 1830. She was reclusive, mysterious and frail in health. Seven of her poems were published during her life, but after her death, her sister, Lavinia, discovered almost 2,000 more poems written on the backs of envelopes and other scraps of paper locked in her bureau. They were published gradually, over 50 years, beginning in 1890.
