December Events!

...Or, the many and varied ways in which Kards Unlimited will observe, celebrate, and participate in jolliness, merriment, and all Holiday tom-foolery!

December is hands-down our favorite month here at KU.  We love the holidays, guys.  A lot.  Almost as much as we love our dogs!  ...Ok, not really that much.  That was a little crazy.  But seriously, we love them so much.  Take a look below the cut to find out all the crazy-awesome things we'll be celebrating this month!

Mmmmmmm, cookies

In the first week of December, we'll celebrate Bartender Appreciation Day (12/1); National Mutt Day (12/2); Let's Hug Day and the beginning of Advent (12/3); National Cookie Day (12/4); Krampusnacht, International Ninja Day, AND Bathtub Party Day (12/5); and National Letter Writing Day (12/7)!

The first week of December also marks the birthdays of everyone's favorite drinker of White Russians, The Dude on the 4th, and the best Keeper of Keys and Grounds in the wizarding world, Rubeus Hagrid on the 6th!
