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.
ME: Do people think I’m peculiar? Every year for some reason the only person that draws the weirdest, crazy, bonkers, goofy and yes peculiar costume design is me. No matter if I draw first, middle or last I get it. It must be my magnetism and how I love Halloween!
Abby: So what peculiar person are you going to be this year?
ME: WOW! I don’t know yet. Have to get my brain working on peculiar!
Well from what I understand from the dictionaries is someone that lives outside the given area. i.e. you live 35 miles away from where you work.
I just realized I’m an “outlier”. Wow! How interesting. That must be the reason I say “bonkers” instead of “crazy”. When I say “bonkers” I always have to say it’s a better word for crazy. Then they really give me a look.
There are more people in this world today that are “outliers” than before. How many no one really knows since people don’t admit they are an “outlier” because again people will look at them like their weird. The funny thing is they are one themselves. They try to hide it from others in any way they can. But as they get older it gets harder. Guess what if someone says they are an “outlier” they will finally, finally, finally admit.
