-- Jack Frost is traditionally said to leave the frosty, fern-like patterns on windows on cold winter mornings (window frost or fern frost) and nipping your fingers and toes in cold weather. Over time, window frost has become far less prevalent in the modern world due to the advance of double-glazing, but Jack Frost remains a well-known figure in popular culture. He is sometimes described or depicted with a paint brush and bucket coloring the autumnal foliage red, yellow, brown, and orange. Source
Read: The Tale of Jack Frost
-- First discovered asleep in the snow by the many gentle creatures who live deep in the forest, a very little boy with snow-white skin surprises his forest friends by waking up and working real magic! Everything he touches turns to frost, which is why the owls, the magpies, the unicorn, the woodhoppers, and all the other forest creatures name him Jack Frost.

National Noodle-Ring Day
- Whether you like homemade pasta or prefer the instant noodle variety like Ramen noodles, Cup noodles or other sorts of pasta, we all know a world without noodles would be total anarchy! OK, maybe not that serious but noodles and pasta are cultural staples for many cultures (i.e. Asian, Italian, cultures etc.)
International Mountain Day
- The holiday is intended to create awareness about the importance of mountains to life, to highlight the opportunities and constraints in mountain development and to build partnerships which will bring positive change to the world's mountains and highlands.
UNICEF Birthday (1946)
- Anniversary of the establishment by the United Nations General Assembly of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on December 11, 1946.
Color Motion Pictures Birthday (1908)
- Development of Kinemacolor, where both filming and projection were done through red and green filters. The film went through the red filter and green filter successively, one filter after the other. Smith's A VISIT TO THE SEASIDE (1908), an eight-minute short, was the first commercial film. The public first saw the process in 1909, in London.
National Knitters Day
- If you don't know how to knit, today is a good day to learn! What are you knitting for Christmas gifts this year?
