On December 13th it is National Horse Day. This day started in 2003 because of the signing of Congress. The reasoning was because the horses that were used by the American Natives died off and Europe sent some horses over during the 1400’s. This day is to remember the significance of the horse throughout history and as well as today.

Barbie and Barney Backlash Day is on December 16th. Yes that is right, people backlashed against Barbie and Barney. This day is for the people who don’t even consider Barbie and Barney a thing. The way this started was because people became annoyed with the sing along songs that were made for the TV shows. The way to celebrate, if you already didn’t know, is to do nothing Barbie or Barney related.
