Origin of this Holiday
Which is the real reason for this holiday?
Our research did not find the real creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

Believe it or not, we did find refrence of a ding-a-ling club.
Ding-a-Ling Club, National, P.O. Box 248, Melrose Park, Ill. 60161
". . . Founded in 1971 "to promote the idea that a ding-a-ling is a wonderful, loving, intelligent, friendly, and the most desirable kind of person to know . . . a real bellringer!" Dues are $3 a year and new members receive a membership card, button, and bumper sticker. Publishes a monthly newsletter, Pealings, which promotes "less wiles, more smiles; less tears, more cheers; less shove, more love." Sponsors an annual National Ding-a-Ling Day on December 12. 600 members."  see resource link

What is this holiday about?
1st Reference Found:
This holiday is to promote the idea that a ding-a-ling is a wonderful, loving, intelligent, friendly, and the most desirable kind of person to know . . . a real bellringer even though they may be a little weird, strange, bizarre and crazy- many ding-a-lings offer a lot to the world and are very loved.

On National Ding-a-Ling Day, you should brace yourself for bizarre and crazy behavior. You can never tell what ding-a-lings will do today.
Second Refrence Found!
It’s to recognize bell ringers around the world.
So drop another buck in the Salvation Army kettle.

"In many countries The Salvation Army is most recognized during the Christmas season with its volunteers who stand outside of businesses and play/sing Christmas carols, or ring bells to inspire passersby to place donations of cash and checks inside red kettles." " A tradition has developed in the United States in which, in some places, gold coins are anonymously inserted into the kettles that the bell ringers collect donations in. This was first recorded in 1982, in Crystal Lake, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago."
