December 20th: Themes for celebration and contemplation

You could, for example, tell them about the wonders of FA Cup third round giant-killing magic, Bulldogz provide you with a handy guide to the forthcoming third round weekend and a round-up of the greatest third-round shocks, all collated in handy video form....here
Ugly Christmas Sweater Day
Another third Friday of the month thing, which just encourages people to wear their Christmas jumpers to work.
Here is a video on how to make your own Christmas jumper....
The 20th of December is Games Day, founded by Games Workshop in 1975 as a board game convention.

So, our Christmas countdown of fun and informative activities in December has come to an end, and if you still need help on this last day of term, here are some Christmas videos on youtube to plug those last hours....
