NATIONAL DING-A-LING DAY

National Ding-a-Ling Day is celebrated across the United States each year on December 12.

In 1972, Franky Hyle placed a free ad in Chase’s Calendar of Events with his PO Box Number in Melrose Park, IL stating that for $1 you can join the National Ding-A-Ling club.  The club, with 871 original members, would call friends and relatives they haven’t heard from in awhile every year on December 12.

The tradition grew and today millions of people will call those people who are dear to them.
