December 21, 2013: Last month we had a day celebrating Doctor Who; this month, we mark the first appearance of those nasty Daleks, back in 1963. Happy 50th, you creepy little things; enjoy your International Dalek Remembrance Day. It’s also Humbug Day, because everyone needs a day to blow off a little holiday-related steam and be grumpy about the whole exhausting mess this time of year. Finally, Flashlight Day cleverly coincides with the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year. If you’re going to go out in the evening (for caroling, or for sangria at a friend’s house, in case you missed either one yesterday), be sure to take your trusty torch.
