December is National Identity Theft Prevention and Awareness Month
. With the holidays being a busy time, and especially this year, many people are going on line and not paying as much attention while fraudsters are taking advantage. December is often a time when data breaches increase. This is a great time to review our resources at www.spacecitycu.com/protect-your-identity
- The name December comes from the Latin decem for “ten”, as it was the 10th month in the Roman Calendar.
- The term Yuletide comes from a Norse tradition of cutting and burning a tree to bring in the Winter Solstice.
- Saint Nickolas, who would eventually be called Santa Claus, was originally the patron saint of children, thieves and pawnbrokers!
- “Jingle bells” was composed in 1857, and not for Christmas – it was meant to be a Thanksgiving song!
Other than the wonderful holidays we will be celebrating in December hear are a few other days I found fun or important:
- December 6th is National Gazpacho Day. Gazpacho comes from an Arabic word for “soaked bread.” Originated in Andalusia, a region of Spain, probably way back in the Middle Ages. Back then it was made out of a combination of stale bread, oil, vinegar, and water all pounded together with a mortar and pestle.
- December 7th is National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance .
- December 18th is National Ugly Sweater Day. This day is held the third Friday of December, Ugly Sweaters were not always made on purpose. The thought is that someone made a mistake in their knitting and it spread as a holiday sweater. Mass marketing of ugly sweaters made their purposeful debut in the 1980’s.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you during 2020. If you would like to schedule a year end overview or a planning session on how to maximize your Space City account, please reach out to me or anyone here at the office.
