Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day
December 8, 2014 in the World
Created in 2007 by the Koala Wallop online community, Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day is an annual event which combines elements of performance art, humour and plain old fun.
As the name suggests, the basic premise of the day is to pretend to be a time traveler, either from the past or from the future, who has somehow ended up in the present day.
For maximum effect, this role play should involve friends and a full costume, should take place in public places and should involve conversations complete strangers.
Get a group of friends together, dress up as time travelers from the future, ask strangers what year it is and respond in horror. Take on the character of a lone time traveler from the past and pretend to be amazed by all forms of modern technology. The possibilities are almost endless.

Take it in the Ear Day
December 8, 2014 in the World
Take it in the Ear Day is a bizarre day of unknown origin. is on all sorts of crazy holiday calendars and websites, but no one knows how it started or what it means. One web site said maybe we are just all spelling it wrong…add an “r” to the beginning of ear.
There is, however, a nifty tee-shirt you can buy commemorating the event. Perhaps tee-shirt designers are the ones behind TIITE day.

Most likely a day to listen to others. Listen to people at work, to friends on the phone and family

National Brownie Day
December 8, 2014 in the USA
National Brownie Day takes place on December 08, 2014. A chocolate brownie is a flat, baked square or bar developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. The brownie is a cross between a cake and a cookie in texture.
Brownies come in a variety of forms. They are either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density, and they may include nuts, frosting, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. A variation that is made with brown sugar and no chocolate is called a blondie.
Brownies are common lunchbox fare, typically eaten by hand, and often accompanied by milk or coffee. They are sometimes served warm with ice cream, topped with whipped cream or marzipan, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. They are especially popular in restaurants, where they can be found in variation on many dessert menus.
