About Card Playing Day

When is Card Playing Day? This special day is always observed on December 28

Card Playing Day is the perfect time to spend an hour or so playing cards with family and friends. And, it arrives at just the perfect time of year…….. a few days after Christmas. The holiday hustle and bustle is over. The kids are getting bored with their new toys. The December 28 holiday is the perfect time to turn to card games for a calmer, more relaxing, and slow-paced form of fun and entertainment.

Enter the world of card games. Cards have survived for centuries as a form of “play” and entertainment. Sure, there are a few serious gambling types among us, who view cards as a serious “business”. To most of us, card games are just games.

Spend the day playing cards with family and friends. If you have kids, make sure to play some age-appropriate card games with them.  You’ll find quality time with the kids that will create many warm memories.

Important Tip: Many games have different variations. Make sure all players know and agree to the rules before you begin. 

Happy Card Playing Day. Now “go fish”, “hit me”, “double”, and “I’ll raise you two!”.
