Cultural and Literary Events for December 2013

Yummy!
December is a great month for fruits and vegetables: Quince and Watermelon Month
(I had to look up quince), Root Vegetables and Exotic Fruits Month (think quince), Tomato and Winter Squash Month.

Vegetables not your thing? Then you may want to celebrate Cooked Grasshoppers Month. Think of the protein. Think of dipping them into chocolate. Think of dark chocolate.

If you're not into food, then you could Write to a Friend or Write a Business Plan.

Check with your library, college, government agencies, or community groups for activities in your area. Listings are for the United States unless noted.

Not all cultural and literary events are declared official by government agencies. Some are by passionate nonprofit groups whose members want to have fun with their topics or get the word out about their important work.
