Today we are celebrating National Leon Day (which is NOEL spelled backwards).
National Leon Day is an unofficial American holiday with an unknown origin, and is observed as the turning point and the halfway mark counting down the days until Christmas Day – six months away to be exact.
Even though this day is not an official holiday you may notice some retailers will be offering special Leon Day promotions, or you might even hear a Christmas song or two on the radio, and this is also the time when crafters far and wide begin making their gifts and decorations for the upcoming Christmas season.
Ways To Celebrate National Leon Day

And don’t be surprised if you happen to see the Salvation Army’s red kettles and bell ringers at your popular shopping mall and grocery stores. Their presence on this day reminds us that donations for your community programs are needed all year round.
Happy National Leon Day!
