What do cookies, socks and dice have in common?
According to NationalDayCalendar.com, they all have national holidays on Dec. 4.
But National Cookie Day is the one to cheer about because this made up holiday features free cookies and sweet treats.
The day to celebrate the cookie was founded in 1987 by Matt Nader of Blue Chip Cookie Company.
