December 11, 2013: International Mountain Day isn’t so much to celebrate the mountains themselves, but to support the people who live in mountain-based communities. If you’re interested in some very dry reading, the United Nations has a page all about this holiday. It’s also Noodle Ring Day, one of the weirdest of the food-based holidays. The noodle ring appears to be an eggy, noodle-filled, casseroleish thing baked in a ring pan. If you do a Google image search for it, be prepared; they’re kind of terrifying.
