National Ding-a-Ling Day

National Ding-a-Ling Day is dedicated to everyone who wants to reconnect once lost! Today it is so easy to talk to people dear to your heart. The main thing is not to be shy to take the initiative and not to wait until the phone rings. Act first!


It is known that in 1972 a certain Frankie High, about whom it is difficult to find information, published a curious announcement in the annual American edition of Chase’s Calendar of Events. He did it absolutely free, but he encouraged readers to join the club in order to call forgotten loved ones. Entry was not free, but cost $1. No one condemned the entrepreneurial talent of a man, on the contrary, they provided support.

Since then, the holiday has spread everywhere. He won a date for himself – December 12th. People on National Day became softer, kinder, friendlier. Some look forward to opening up and hearing a long-forgotten voice over the phone. By the way, “Ding-a-Ling” in the context sounds like “hearing the bells.” Unusual, right?

Interesting facts

Amazing things about bells:

  • appeared in China around the 23rd century BC;
  • the sound depends on the metal from which they were made;
  • in the UK there is a bell that never stops – it works with the help of static electricity. For over 180 years it has been making sound;
  • products are used not only for religious purposes – it is a full-fledged musical instrument.

How to celebrate

On National Ding-a-Ling Day, the best thing to do is dial a number and call the person you want to hear. Let it be an old acquaintance, classmate, colleague, old neighbor! Give up text messages.
