National Fritters Day
- This holiday is about making and enjoying homemade fritters! Fritters are popular all over the world and come in many different flavors. The favorite is a crispy dessert apple fritter, but you can make your own homemade savory fritters too!
Special Education Day (1975)
- Celebrate the anniversary of the first US special education law — December 2, 1975. Take the day to honor progress and celebrate students with disabilities -- and their parents, teachers, and schools. And, we dialogue and plan for the future for all students in our schools and for appropriate reforms.
International Day for the Abolition of Slavery Day (1949)
- Recalls the date of adoption by the General Assembly in 1949 of the Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and the Exploitation of Others. To remind people modern slavery works against human rights. The day also encourages people to put meaning to the words of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights -- no one shall be held in slavery or servitude through their actions.
I Dream of Jeannie Wedding Day (1969)
- Major Nelson and Jeannie finally get married, with Major Healey as best man — but not without problems: Jeannie's image can't be photographed!

- Barney C. Clark, 61, became the first recipient of a permanent artificial heart in 1982. The operation was performed at the University of Utah Medical Center at Salt Lake City. Near death at the time of the operation, Clark survived almost 112 days after the implantation.
First Self-Sustaining Nuclear Chain Reaction (1942)
