December Holidays You Might Not Know Existed

December 1—World AIDS Awareness Day
Created in 1988 by the UN World Health Organization, World AIDS Awareness Day is commonly observed by educating the public about the disease, donating to the cause, and encouraging people to know their risk and health status.

December 2—National Fritters Day
On December 2, join fritter lovers nationwide in munching on cakes of fried dough (often similar to pancake batter) with savory (meat or vegetables) or sweet (fruit, etc.) fillings. Enjoy chickpea fritters at Via Vanti! in Mount Kisco or corn fritters at Pete’s Saloon in Elmsford. 

December 15-21—Gluten-Free Baking Week
If you want to avoid baked goods containing gluten or need to serve a guest who is intolerant to the protein, visit for recipes or pick up dessert from Three Dogs Gluten-Free Bakery in Briarcliff Manor.
