Five Things to Start Your Day: Dec. 12

A few facts, figures and tidbits to start your Wednesday.


Wednesday: Sunshine and high clouds. Chilly. Around 40.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 40s.

Friday: More sunshine. Temps in the upper 40s.

2. GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME: Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is excited to bring back America’s favorite cookies. With eight delicious flavors to satisfy your taste buds, there is a flavor for everyone. Girl Scout cookies are sold for a limited time each year. Purchase your Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbreads, Thanks-A-Lots, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Sandwiches and new Mango Crèmes, before March 12, 2013.

Keep an eye out for Girl Scout troops selling cookies at tables outside your favorite local retail stores and going door-to-door in your neighborhood, and offered for sale by parents or relatives at your place of business.

3. SEE SANTA AT MILL VILLAGE: Santa Claus is coming to Mill Village Plaza on Thursday from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

He will be visiting the retail shops and taking the wishlists of all the good boys and girls!. Parents will be able to take their own photos so be sure to bring along your camera!

4. GET PATCH IN YOUR INBOX: Whether you enjoy daily, weekend or breaking news, you can have it delivered straight to your inbox. Sudbury residents can sign up here; Acton residents here.

5. WHAT TO CELEBRATE TODAY: 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 National Ding-a-Ling Day, 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 rocker. We say, it is simply a day to cut loose, act a little weird.
