December 15th: Themes for celebration and contemplation
If you are looking for some themes and points of interest to add to your advent countdown, the Bulldogz Christmas spirit is in full flow and we can provide you with some of the fun, serious and little known points of celebration for each day on this magical countdown.

A celebration since 2005 in tea producing countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Bangladesh. It is commonly used as a campaign tool to raise awareness for fair trade policies and gobal trade impacts on tea workers.

Cat herders day
Not so much a day for cat lovers but more a day for those whose life or jobs feels like herding cats. No matter how organised you may be, you will be unable to manage your tasks and objectives.
