Balance Transfer Day.  Time explains:

Balance Transfer Day is the Next Facebook-Driven Protest Against Big Banks
A new month, a new Facebook-led protest against big banks. Protesters have declared December 11 “Balance Transfer Day” in an effort to get Americans to ditch their high-interest credit cards for cards with lower rates or zero percent teasers.

“[W]hy don’t we beat the banks at their own game and demand the same 0% interest rate that they receive from the federal government?” the protest’s organizers say on its Facebook page. “This can be achieved by transferring card balances from interest bearing accounts with large banks to 0% interest cards issued by credit unions and community banks.” But consumers might find this hard to accomplish, and it’s possible that the very big banks against which the movement is campaigning could be the unintended beneficiaries.
