TWIGSNation­al Hand Wash­ing Aware­ness Week runs from Decem­ber 6–12. Kind­ly remem­ber to wash your hands at least 5 times a day to sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce your odds of get­ting sick this year!

Pre­tend to be a Time Trav­el­er Day (Decem­ber 8) neces­si­tates dress­ing in a trench coat, and run­ning from between build­ings or  out of an alley­way and grab­bing the near­est per­son to ask them, “WHAT YEAR IS IT?” When they tell you 2015, exclaim, “IT WORKED!” and run away whoop­ing. Strong­ly rec­om­mend­ed.
