About National Ding-a-Ling Day

When is National Ding-a-Ling Day? This holiday is always observed on December 12

Today is National Ding-a-Ling Day, a very special day to “Ring your Bell”.  Nope, we’re not talking about the Salvation Army Bell Ringers, standing with their bells and kettles, outside of every store in the country. On this December 12 holiday, you should brace yourself for bizarre and crazy behavior, from all of the people you encounter today. Even normally conservative people have been known to go a little crazy on this day. 

Some people say this is a day for wackos, lunatics, and others who are off their rockers. We say it is simply a day to cut loose and act a little weird.

For the record: Ding-a-Lings and Ding Bats are not quite the same things. Ding-a-lings are just weird. They are funny and fun to be with and watch. Dingbats are bat crazy and not a lot of fun.

Song of the Day: My Ding A Ling (1972) by Chuck Berry. Caution: This is a catchy tune. Once you get it in your head, it is hard to get it out.

How to Celebrate National Ding-a-Ling Day

What do you do to celebrate this day? Be ever vigilant to the ding-a-lings that will come out of the woodwork. Ding-a-Lings will be everywhere: on the road, on the street, in stores, and even in your house. And there’s no shortage of ding-a-lings where you work. We suggest you get into the holiday spirit and become a ding-a-ling yourself……But, please do so for just one day. 

If you prefer to do something good and worthwhile, we suggest you be the ding-a-ling that rings the bell for the Salvation Army. Your efforts will raise money to help people in need in your community.

Ring someone’s bell… if you know what I mean.

History and Origin of National Ding-a-Ling Day

Despite our diligent efforts, we have yet to find the Ding-a-Ling who created this neat day. Nor, did we find factual information about this day.

We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation required to create a true “National” day.
