Welcome to the 133rd edition of the Best of Money Carnival. I’m honored to have the opportunity to host this celebration of the best personal finance posts by my fellow bloggers. Since the holiday season is in full swing, I thought I’d share some of the wackier “holidays” that are celebrated in the month of December along with this week’s best posts…
December 5 – Bathtub Party Day. Well this certainly sounds a lot more fun than a boring holiday party at the office, though I guess it depends on who you’re sharing the tub with.
Bob presents 5 Reasons to Save For Retirement Before Saving For Your Kid’s College posted at ChristianPF.
December 5 – International Ninja Day. Yup, it sounds like the ninjas will be crashing the bathtub party!
December 7 – National Cotton Candy Day. I can’t say cotton candy is the first food that comes to mind when I think of the holidays, but what the hell.
December 26 – National Whiner’s Day. Obviously this is the day for all the spoiled brats to whine about all the Christmas presents they wanted and didn’t get.
December 28 – No Interruptions Day. As the father of 3 kids between the ages of 2-7, this sounds like heaven to me…ahhhh quiet.
December 10 – Dewey Decimal Day. Does anyone still use the Dewey decimal system? Can’t we just use Google?
Paula @ Afford Anything presents Should I Repay Debt or Invest? – 7 Important Factors to Consider posted at Afford Anything.
December 9 – Weary Willie Day. I was a little afraid to look this one up, it just doesn’t sound very good. Turns out it’s to honor a clown.
Marie presents How to Keep Your Financial and Personal Information Safe posted at Money Spending Mommy.
December 15 – Cat Herder’s Day. Not really sure what this one is all about, but all I can picture is the Crazy Cat Lady from The Simpsons.
December 23 – Festivus. Seinfeld fans better start polishing their Festivus poles and warming up for the feats of strength!
December 30 – Bacon Day. Now this is a holiday I can get behind! Bacon makes everything taste better!
