It's December 11th. Only 14 days left until Christmas. But today is something more than just a countdown date for the quintessential holiday—it's Angry Birds Day, which marks the one-year anniversary of the popular mobile video game.
Today, Angry Birds fans around the world will be celebrating, thanks to a little incentive from Angry Birds creator Rovio Mobile. On the Angry Birds Blog, they state that the "designers at Rovio studios will recreate the 10 most active cities that participate in celebrating Angry Birds Day!"
To get your city featured in the popular puzzle game, you need to visit the Angry Birds Flash Mob Meetup, create (or join) a local meetup in your area, then invite all your friends to join in on the fun!
"Raise your voice to STOP THE MADNESS, and send us photos and video from your event!"
After the day is finishes, the Angry Birds Team will select the 10 most "crowded, loudest, creative, and fun Angry Birds Day locations from around the world" for which they will recreate in an upcoming Angry Birds experience.

Since its release last December, Angry Birds has been a constant hit on the iTunes App Store. First available for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, the gameplay involves slingshotting birds at pigs stationed on various structures, with the intent of destroying all of the swine on the battlefield. Though the concept seems simple, it's completely and utterly addicting.
With the popularity of Angry Birds on the iPhone and iPod Touch, it then moved onto the iPad and other mobile devices, such as Android and Nokia smartphones. And now it even has a holiday version of the game— Angry Birds Seasons.
Angry Birds Seasons is what everyone wants for Christmas. In the game, you countdown the 25 days of Christmas with a new level to play each day. Instead of shooting pigs though, you're shooting presents as you frolic the fun new levels of the snow-filled winter wonderland.
PS: There's also a Halloween version of Angry Birds!
