Clark Kent's Birthday (Superman)
-- In the comics, Superman's birthday is far from a consistent thing. You have to keep in mind as far as his two sets of parents are concerned, Superman would have two different birthdays. Whatever Kal-El's actual birthday would be on Krypton depends on how you want to interpret the intricacies of the Kryptonian calendar. 2009’s Superman: Secret Origin depicts Clark celebrating his birthday on December 1.

World AIDS Day/World AIDS Awareness Day (1988)
- Dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. AIDS has killed more than 25 million people, with an estimated 38.6 million people living with HIV, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. In 1988 the World Health Organization of the UN declared December 1st as World AIDS Day. The WHO is the leader in global direction and coordination of AIDS prevention, control, research, and education.
National Eat a Red Apple Day
- It is really easy to participate in this special day. There are thousands of varieties of apples grown all over the planet. Your mission today is to pick an apple among all of these varieties and eat it. Just make sure it's a red apple!
Bifocals at the Monitor Liberation Day
- Our hearts fill with compassion today for coworkers stuck wearing bifocals at the computer. Shed a tear as their heads bob up and down, in and out, trying to read the monitor, trying to decide which set of lenses to use. The name of today's holiday could also suggest the possibility someone might sneak into a neighbor's cubicle and liberate his or her bifocals.
Day With(out) Art Day (1989)
- An annual observance about the impact of AIDS on the visual arts. Events to increase public awareness through the visual arts and direct services to artists living with HIV/AIDS.
Special Kids Day (1990)
- This day began as a holiday event for children with special needs and their families to visit Santa Claus without obstacles. Dedicated to providing celebratory events for children with disabilities and their families in environments designed to accommodate their special needs.
Rosa Parks Day (Ohio, Oregon/1955)
- Anniversary of the arrest of Rosa Parks, at Montgomery, AL, in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat and move to the back of a municipal bus. Her arrest triggered a year-long boycott of the city bus system and led to legal actions ending racial segregation on municipal buses throughout the southern US. The event has been called the birth of the modern civil rights movement.
Phony Smile Day
- Are you going to celebrate this one? Do you give a fake smile when you are unhappy?
Basketball Created (1891)
- James Nai-smith was a teacher of physical education at the International YMCA Training School at Springfield, MA in 1891. To create an indoor sport which could be played during the winter months, he nailed up peach baskets at opposite ends of the gym and gave students soccer balls to toss into them. Thus was born the game of basketball.
Playboy First Published (1953)
- an American men's magazine that features photographs of nude women as well as journalism and fiction. It was founded in Chicago in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates, and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner's mother.
