It's easy to get caught up in the decorating, shopping, and planning for Christmas and forget about the importance of celebrating International Ninja Day!

Every December 5th this holiday sneaks up on us like... well like a ninja.

Here are 5 ways to make sure your friends and family know you didn't overlook International Ninja Day!

1. Break out Your Throwing Stars and Nunchucks.

I will have to do some digging, but I know I have my collection of throwing stars somewhere. Break out your blow dart gun, dust of the nunchucks, and celebrate the day with your favorite ninja weaponry.

2. Watch as Many Ninja Movies as Possible.

There are no shortage of ninja classics to choose from. Once you've made it through the movies break out your Sega and play some Ninja Gaiden like video games.

3. Listen to Ninja Rap by Vanilla Ice on Repeat.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II Secret of the Ooze brought Bebop and Rocksteady to the big screen. It also gave us this Vanilla Ice anthem that we can put on heavy rotation to inspire our inner ninja.

4. Get a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tattoo.

Hardcore ninja fans can permanently commemorate the day by getting inked with some of the greatest pizza loving ninjas in history.

5.Turn Your House or Office into an American Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course.

Jump the couches and scale the cubicles, your kids will appreciate it and your boss will hopefully get over it.
