There's More to December Than Just Christmas

Every year, it seems as though we’ve been ready for December all year long. It feels good to finally arrive here and have so much to look forward to as we gear up for another year. It's been a wild and interesting ride these last 12 months, but we're ready for whatever the new year has for us!

We have so much to look forward to this month, and we don’t just mean your typical, traditional holidays like Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, etc. We’re talking about a day dedicated entirely to the sock, or in honor of the Dewey Decimal system (RIP). Oh, and we should probably mention there’s a day this month designated 100% to having anything you want covered in chocolate. Need we say more?

Happy celebrating and happy December!
