It teaches, through step-by-step projects, how to wrap commonly shaped gifts beautifully and affordable.

National Cookie Day
- A day for honoring and enjoying the sweet flavor of cookies and sharing them with friends and family. A day to sit down with a tall cold glass of milk or hot coffee, a large plate of fresh cookies, and have no guilt at eating them all up.
Santa's List Day
- Have you been good all year? Have you been Naughty? Or, have you been nice? Santa knows.
National Dice Day
- A day for everyone to enjoy playing the game of dice. You could also celebrate by playing your favorite role-playing game, or maybe just Monopoly! And if you're superstitious, don't forget to blow on the dice for good luck!
Wear Brown Shoes Day
- Dust off those seldom-worn brown shoes and put them on your feet. Brown boots, loafers, or any other brown colored footwear will do. Oh, and wear brown socks to match.
Extraordinary Work Team Recognition Day
- Set aside this day to celebrate those teams who consistently work extraordinarily well together to produce significant results for their companies or organizations.
Manila Paper Birthday (1845)
- Manila paper (made from sails, canvas, and rope) was patented in Reading, Massachusetts on December 4, 1845.
National Grange Birthday (1786)
- The anniversary of the National Grange, the first organized agricultural movement in the US in 1786 - to unite private citizens in improving the economic and social position of the nation's farm population. The National Grange is the nation's oldest national agricultural organization, with grassroots units established in 2,700 local communities in 40 states.
Falcon Crest TV Premiere (1981)
- This 1981 nighttime serial was set in California wine country and originally focused on Angela Channing's determined efforts to gain control of the Falcon Crest vineyard and winery; later in the nine-year run, the emphasis turned to crime.
Saint Barbara's Day
- On this day, traditionally the feast day of St. Barbara, a young girl places a twig from a cherry tree in a glass of water. If it blooms by Christmas Eve, she is certain to marry the following year. Because the narratives of her life and martyrdom are legendary, St. Barbara was dropped from the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints in 1970.
