One of the things I enjoy most about living in Silicon Valley, Calif. is the freedom to be weird and explore a variety of interests. I enjoy learning new facts and odd pieces of history.

Sometimes I come across intriguing facts while reading the local San Jose Mercury News, Mental Floss or  Smithsonian Magazine. Other times I find stories or tidbits online at The History Place, Brainy History or National Geographic Society. Today’s collection of facts was found at The People History.

While these interesting items are intriguing, they have nothing to do with selling homes in Silicon Valley: instead, they add fun and fascination to life. Here are today’s 5 curious facts from December 20th. I hope you find them interesting, too.


December 20th, 1945: At Nuremburg, Nazi doctors and soldiers were charged with cruel and bizarre torture of concentration camp prisoners. Seven hundred and fifty thousand SS soldiers alone faced criminal charges.


December 20th, 1957: It was a sad day for women all over the world when Elvis Presley received his draft notice to report to the United States Army on December 20th. 


December 20th, 1979 Mrs Thatcher's government of Great Britain allows more than five million council house tenants in Britain the right to buy their homes under new government proposals.


December 20th, 1995: The Queen of Englad urges the Prince and Princess of Wales to seek "an early divorce". 

20th December, 2011: The Charities Aid Foundation rated the United States as the world's most charitable country in 2011, up from fifth place in 2010. Runners-up included The Irish Republic, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The CAF stated that in 2011 people were more likely to donate charitable acts than money due to the global economic crisis.
