Write to a Friend Month:

A folder handwritted letter - In this age of texting, email, Twitter, and Facebook actual letter-writing seems to have become a lost art.

Bingo's Birthday Month :

Cupcakes with lit candles and a couple of Bingo balls - The game was originally called “beano” and dates back to 1530 with the Italian variation called Lo Giuoco del Lotto D'Italia. Bingo was made by toy salesman, Edwin S. Lowe, who initially overheard someone accidentally yell “bingo!” in their utter excitement playing Beano at a carnival. He produced the first commercial version of the game, which retailed at $1.
