National Ding-a-Ling Day

MA Blogger: Brenda Bernstorf

               Today is National Ding-a-Ling Day and Poinsettia Day. So the “National” part is somewhat of a stretch when it comes to Ding-A-Ling Day. This is the day wackos come out with bizarre and crazy behavior – and I say that affectionately. This is the day to just cut loose and go a little crazy, but just for the one day.

You may think that National Ding-a-Ling Day is a day for the Salvation Army bell ringers, but it’s not. However, you can’t help but think about the good they do. Forbes rates them as one of the very best charities to donate to.

National Poinsettia Day was actually officially declared by an Act of Congress. Joel Roberts Poinsett brought the colorful plant back to the U.S. after serving as the first Ambassador to Mexico. Thank you Mr. Poinsett and Mexico for this beautiful plant!

So go a little crazy, make a donation, and buy a poinsettia!
