25 December - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Nomanda’s Happy Special Day blog is a celebration of events and anniversaries that have touched our lives. If today is your special day join us in looking at a few other events that have occurred on your day. Enjoy!


Nomanda wishes all our friends and faithful supporters a Very Happy Christmas and hopes that you all have a wonderful time with your families and friends on this special day!

The Royal Christmas message has become a great English tradition and during his Christmas speech on this day in 1932 King George V had his chair collapse on him. I’m sure he recovered the situation with appropriate dignity and probably sacked the carpenter afterwards! I wonder what her Majesty will have to say today. I can’t wait!

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without some of our favourite carols so let’s start with “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer” who was introduced as the 9th reindeer to the world by Montgomery Ward on this day in 1939.

And while Rudolf is “Dashing through the Snow” let’s have another!

There are lots of people who have been born on this day. Most of them are still coming to terms with the fact that when they were kids they never really got a birthday present as it was all mixed up with their Christmas present!

However on this day in particular we are only remembering the infant Jesus who despite the fact that it’s pretty certain that He was not born on this day this is the day when we celebrate His birth!


If you know someone who is celebrating their birthday, anniversary or a special day today or sometime soon why not send them a nice e-card so they get it as soon as they log on! Even better, why not send this page to your friend!
Don’t know what to get for a present? Think about what your special person enjoys doing and the things they like.

For Girls, I know that flowers and chocolates are a bit cliché but nevertheless they always seem to work! Of course, if your budget stretches that far, jewellery, watches, perfume and fashion items are always appreciated!

For Boys, all boys like toys! It’s just as they get older the toys get more expensive. So gadgets and gimmicky things work. Again, if you have the budget then car accessories, sporting equipment and clothes, and man type jewellery like watches and gold chains will go down very well!

And, if all else fails, you could always send them a gift voucher and they can choose whatever they want!

If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special event today I hope you got lots of cards and presents and that there is someone special in your life who will make this day a very happy and special day for you.

Happy celebrations to you from the Happy Special Day Blog!!
