December Holidays That Aren’t Christmas

Christmas is a behemoth.  It’s the mother of all holidays.  Why else would we spend so much time preparing for it?  While Christmas is definitely the headliner holiday of December, let us not forget lesser known days like “Bacon Day” or “Bake Cookies Day”.

Oh…you’ve never heard of these days?!  Don’t worry; we didn’t know about them either until we found DaysOfTheYear.com.  Here’s a few of our favorite December “holidays”, courtesy of DaysOfTheYear.com, and how Organize-It can help you celebrate these joyous days.

Did you know the December is Tie Month?  Well, you do now!  Whether you like them skinny or wide, solid or pattered, Organize-It has many tie organization options to make sure your ties are kept neat and tidy all year long, like this Lighted Revolving Tie Rack.  This tie rack can hold up to 64 ties and has 8 storage hooks for belts.

This Aluminum Jelly Roll Pan would be of great use on Brownie Day (December 8).  This pan is 17.25 inches by 11.25 inches and has a pebble texture that helps food brown evenly.

What better way to celebrate Bake Cookies Day (December 18) than with this OXO Good Grips Cookie Press !  This cookie press comes with 12 different dough disks to make a variety of different shaped cookies.

Bacon Day is December 30.  I know what you’re thinking:  “Isn’t ‘Bacon Day’ everyday?”.  If you’re a bacon lover, than this OXO Splatter Screen will help protect you from rogue grease flying when you’re frying your bacon.
