Fun December Holidays
Bingo¡¦s Birthday Month
Bingo! December is Bingo¡¦s Birthday Month. It is one of America¡¦s favorite games and has stood the test of time. It has evolved from the tried and true version to Facebook Bingo, Electronic Bingo, Classic Songs Bingo, Christmas Bingo and many others varieties, far too many versions to count.
Bingo was first manufactured by Edwin S. Lowe in 1929, but has been traced back to as early as 1530. But did you know that it was first called beano?
Food for thought. ƒº
It was originally a county fair game in the U.S. where the dealer selected numbered circles from a cigar box and if the players had the number called they marked their cards with beans. When someone won they yelled ¡§beano!¡¨
Hi Neighbor Month
December is Hi Neighbor Month.
Neighbors come in all shapes and sizes and can be found not only in your own backyard, but at your office, civic group or any of the other myriad of places you might go.
Many of us don¡¦t know our neighbors no matter where we might live, work or play. Be the first to break the barrier and reach out. Bake some cookies, throw a block party or bring in some goodies wherever you might hang out. Great friends can be made by just one person reaching out, especially when food is involved.
Show your neighbors, co-workers and others that you might want to get to know, how much you care. Kindness is contagious. Spread some today!
