Let the Celebrating Begin

It may seem like the time for celebrations is over but this month has a host of bizarre and wacky days and ways that beg to be marked in some way or another. If not with a party at least with a little laugh and cup of hot tea, since

January is HOT TEA MONTH.

Or you can cook up a pot of soup because it is also National Soup Month.

You can also have a bowl of oatmeal to celebrate National Oatmeal Month.

Do you see the trend of warm, soothing comfort foods, for the coldest month of the year?

But today - January 19th - a popping good day as it is National Popcorn Day.

Tomorrow go find a penguin and hug it.

There you have Penguin Awareness Day and National Hugging Day all taken care of. If you can’t find a penguin you could always catch a squirrel. January 21st is also Squirrel Appreciation Day.

Next Monday, January 23rd, be sure to celebrate with a delicious pie and measure your feet while you’re at it. Yes, you read that correctly,
National Pie Day and Measure Your Feet Day on the same day.

On the 24th be kind and compliment someone (Compliment Day). And on the 25th do the opposite for (Opposite day.)

January 27th is a tried and true favorite -- Chocolate Cake Day.

January 28th give a toot on National Kazoo Day.

January 29th is National Corn Chip Day - break out the Tostitos or Fritos.

And on the 31st - Yad drawkcaB. That’s Backward Day. I was just practicing.

So have fun celebrating for the remainder of the month.

Feel free to comment on any unique ways or holidays you celebrate.


  1. Hooray! for today. I love popcorn.

    Thanks for posting this.

  2. I agree Vicki, National Popcorn Day the best. Although I think popcorn could have a whole month.

  3. Fun post!! Did you see the picture of the albino penguin on line the other day? It was super cute.

  4. Albino penguin. I bet it was adorable. I am off to google it now. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. What a great post! Am celebrating popcorn day right now, as DH got a theatre-style popper for Christmas.

  6. Arabella, I am jealous of the popper. I try to make mine a little healthy, air popped with olive oil and parmesan cheese.

  7. Ah, I see I've stopped by on Opposite Day. Lots of fun things celebrated in the month of January.

  8. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you weren't being opposite in your comment LOL. Have a great month.
