Celebrate National Ding-A-Ling Day 2021
Ding-A-Ling Day is a uniquely American invention. It is basically a two-day holiday when people are supposed to reconnect with the people they used to talk to.
It is celebrated on December 12 every year. When we move from one phase of life to another, many things change. Sometimes we lose touch with people, or we do not get enough time to hang out with them. And it feels so good when you reconnect with them after a long time.
Yes, ding-a-ling in this context means to ring up people on the telephone and touch base with them once again
History of National Ding-A-Ling Day
Something similar happened with a group of friends who were meeting each other after a long time. This was in the 1970s. In their quest to mark the importance of loved ones and friends who are drawn apart, they founded the theme Ding-A-Ling. One among those friends was Franky Hyle, who created the club Ding-A-Ling. Every year, on 12th December, people come there and call their loved ones with whom they previously shared a beautiful bond.
Have you lost touch with someone with whom you used to talk very often? If yes, just ring the bell and celebrate. Since then, this has become a tradition. The club initially started with 871 people, and today it has millions of members.
