National Hard Candy Day
Most hard candies are 100% sugar with flavoring and colors added. To achieve a hard candy, confectioners boil a sugar syrup to 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature is reached, the hot, pliable sugar is poured into molds or rolled and folded into shapes and left to cool. Once cool, the solid sugar becomes hardened and brittle.
National Re-Gifting Day
Each year on the Thursday before Christmas people across the United States participate in National Re-gifting Day. This day was chosen in honor of office parties and the unique Christmas gift exchange that they do. This particular December Thursday appears to be the most common day for companies to hold their annual employee/company Christmas party.
