National Ding-a-Ling Day is observed across the United States each year on December 12.

Ding-a-Lings on this day call the people they haven’t heard from in a while.  It may be an old classmate, co-worker or neighbor from years ago.  Or perhaps a call will go out to the child who used to mow the grass during the summer.  How about that couple who carpooled for soccer.  What was their name? There are all sorts of people in our lives who manage to slip out of our lives who would love to hear the ding-a-ling of a call from you or me.  Why don’t you join the Ding-a-ling club and call someone this year?

HOW TO OBSERVE

Call someone you haven’t heard from in a long time and use #NationalDingALingDay to post on social media.

For the history of this day go to National Day Calendar.com

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
