January HoliDailys

 

While the big holiday season has come and gone and a brand new year is here, there are plenty of holidays during the month of January.  While holidays typically honor special people, important historical events, momentous occasions or worthwhile causes, other holidays in January celebrate the birth of a civil rights leader, a variety of products, animal-related holidays and delicious food and beverages.   Like other months of the year, January has many traditional holidays as well as downright wacky and unusual holidays, too.

 

So get out the calendar, handy dandy personal organizer or calendar app, and pencil in the following special occasions. That way, you will never miss a holiday again because every day of the year really is a holiday!
