         1. Santa’s List Day—given the bargains on Black Friday through Cyber Monday why this observance of those establishing that they have been naughty or nice and therefore on the right column of Santa’s list is a mystery to this poet.                                    
         2. Faux Fur Day—celebrated by all those fur bearing animals that have no desire to shed their furry pelts for fashion and most likely supported by PETA and those husbands and boyfriends desirous of not going bankrupt.
         3. 1958 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1958 on a run of three weeks in that position To Know Him Is To Love Him by The Teddy Bears. Here is a link to The Teddy Bears’ recording of To Know Him Is To Love Him
       4. National Cookie Day—celebrating another great snake especially if it comes from Kelli’s Best    
         5. No Forever With Addiction—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1944 of the only true surfer with The Beach Boys, Dennis Wilson song writer and drummer who wrote among other songs, Forever but fought alcoholism and drowned at the age of 39 after a night of heavy drinking diving into the ocean to try to recover items lost three years ago.
On this day in:  
         a. 1791 in London, The Observer, the world’s first and oldest Sunday newspaper published its first edition.
         b. 1881 the first edition of the Los Angeles Times was published.
         c. 1943 in what must be a first, the closing of a huge federal agency, President Roosevelt closed the Works Progress Administration due to high wartime civilian employment.

      e. 2014 the UN released a warning that global temperatures had reached the highest level ever recorded.     
Reflections on why faux fur is good for your soul: “ We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.” William Ralph Inge, noted 20th Century English author, Anglican priest and Professor of Divinity at Cambridge
