National Flashlight day


National flashlight day is celebrated the 21st of December every year. Never heard of it?? Well neither had we til recently. No one is quite sure where the day came from or why we celebrate it December 21st. What we do know is that we rely on ours and our lil princess bought her daddy one for Christmas this year.

National flashlight day falls on winter solstice. If you did not know all ready winter solstice is always the longest night and shortest day of the year. Since there will be more darkness than usual there is more of  need of a flashlight.

I hope you are safe and keep your flashlight shining.

  1. I have flashlights but they probably need batteries. We do have a solar one though and a crank one.

  7. The timing of the day makes perfect sense. Speaking of this, I should probably get some more batteries for mine.

  15. As I live near the shore, we get hurricanes. I know where my flashlights are and batteries. Had no idea we can celebrate - it should be a big one for those of us with weather issues
