Before proceeding with my mini rant, I want to acknowledge the importance of today which is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
I don’t know about you, but for me January is the longest, dreariest month of the year. It’s a real nothing month – nothing but cold, nothing but snow, nothing like getting up in the morning while it’s still dark. I could go on, but you get the picture. The best part of January is the day the calendar shows 31 and the month is done.
Some of you might lump February in with January as another dismal month. It can be, but from my perspective February is not so bleak. After all it is the shortest month and Valentine’s Day can be a lot of fun even if you are flying solo. However, that’s for another blog.
Rather than continuing to rag on January, I decided to hunt for the good. I searched note worthy days in the month. So let’s enjoy some of the lighter side of January:
Jan. 3 – Fruitcake Toss Day
Jan. 4 – National Spaghetti Day
Jan. 8 – Bubble Bath Day
Jan. 10 – National Take The Stairs Day
Jan. 10 – Peculiar People Day
Jan. 15 – National Hat Day
Jan. 16 – National Nothing Day
Jan. 18 – Winnie the Pooh Day (A.A. Milne’s birthday)
Jan. 20 – Penguin Awareness Day
Jan. 21 – National Hugging Day
Jan. 21 – Squirrel Appreciation Day
Jan. 23 – National Pie Day
Jan. 24 – Compliment Day (This should be every day)
Jan. 27 – Chocolate Cake Day
Jan. 28 – National Kazoo Day
Jan. 29 – Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day
