On December 1, 1955, a key moment in the history of the American Civil Rights movement. Montgomery, Alabama seamstress Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man, and was arrested. But that's not all! December 1 is also the date that...

...the Presidential election of 1824 was thrown into the House of Representatives
...Paul McCartney and Pete Best were arrested in Hamburg
...and the French and English parts of the Channel Tunnel finally connected!

The first bikini model, the Divine Miss M, comedians Richard Pryor and Woody Allen, and golfer Lee Travino were all born on December 1. Israel's first prime minister, the namesake of Mount Everest, and the wickedest man in the world died.

There's plenty to celebrate on December 1! It's Fullveldisdagurinn in Iceland, Teacher's Day in Panama, and Wam Damrong Rachanuphap day in Thailand. (Not to mention National Egg Nog Month and National Handwashing Week.)
