  • It's Groundhog Day! I'm sure you all needed reminding. But did you know it's also Tater Tot Day? And even better, Heavenly Hash Day!! Tater Tots are a tasty potato treat that's a bit like small, round hashbrown bits with a hint of french fry. Heavenly Hash is... a desert. One that everyone makes a little differently. It may or may not involve cake, ice cream, and/or whipped cream.
    Two posts for one day, Today is Baked Alaska Day, Freedom Day, Get up Day, Serpent Day, and Texas Day! I've never had baked Alaska, but maybe I can try it in Texas while celebrating freedom from slavery and telling inspiring stories of perseverance to remind us all to get up and try again when we've fallen. It's really quite an inspiring day when you think about it. :)
    This is the month for: Bake for the Family Fun Month! Creative Romance, Library Lovers, Enrolled Agents, Fasting, Free and Open Source Software, Great American Pies, Heart Month, Self Check Month, and Weddings Month. No, I have no idea what some of these mean, like Enrolled Agents Month, but now is the time to find out!
    Unwelcome to Backward Day! The world is upside down and inside out and madness is sanity, sanity is madness, and day is night! At least in theory. The point of backward day is to help people loosen up and shake off the seriousness of everyday life. Also, today is Hot Chocolate day and Inspire Your Heart with Art Day. (Interestingly, Art was an Olympic event from 1912-1948)
    Welcome to Croissant Day and Seed Swap Day! I enjoy a good croissant, and seed swaps always sounded like fun, but I've never taken part. Also today, it's not a holiday, but today is the day that Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948. Truly a man of greatness, and though he had his flaws (who doesn't?), he is someone I hold in high esteem.
    Welcome to Big Wig Day, Corn Chip Day, and Puzzle Day! Big Wig Day is not what you think. It is "both an expression of the potential inside of all of us and an entertaining opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others ... by donning your biggest, wildest wig and having a party to raise funds to donate to the American Cancer Society Look Good/Feel Better division." (national day calendar)
    Pancakes! Blueberry Pancake Day! Also Data Privacy Day, which, while important, is not as fun as pancakes. Unlike Have Fun at Work Day! (yes, that is a real thing) And finally, Kazoo Day! Please do not play a kazoo while eating blueberry pancakes at work while reviewing your data privacy safeguards.
    It's Chocolate Cake Day!! Also, Library Shelfie Day! Chocolate Cake Day doesn't need much explaining, but what is Library Shelfie Day? It just means getting a selfie in front of a library bookshelf. This day is celebrated every fourth Wednesday in January since 2014, and people are encouraged to post the pic with the hashtag, #LibraryShelfie. I just want a quiet place to read my book...
    Welcome to Australia Day! As well as Spouses Day, Peanut Brittle Day, Green Juice Day, and Plan a Vacation Day! I guess you could... plan a vacation with your spouse, or if you don't have one but want one, plan a vacation to Australia where you will meet your spouse while eating peanut brittle and drinking Green Juice! Yeah, that just sounds weird. I think I will plan a vacation to my kitchen.
    Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!!! Honestly, this should be every day. Also, happy Florida Day and Irish Coffee Day! Last, but not least, unhappy Opposite day. I have to say, the last is my favorite, even more than bubble wrap. :cool:
    Today is Beer Can Appreciation Day, Compliment Day, and Peanut Butter Day! I genuinely don't know how to compliment a beer can while eating peanut butter, but apparently, we are supposed to commemorate the day beer was first sold in a can, learn that peanut butter was invented by the Incans around 1000 BC (ish), and focus on complimenting everyone today. I can totally go for that last one!
    Today is Pie Day!! Not to be confused with Pi Day, which isn't until March. So eat some pie! Also, today is Handwriting Day, so be sure to write a fancy note about how you like pie. And possibly Pi.

    Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day! Did you know there's only about 140,000 red squirrels left, most of them in Scotland? It sounds like a lot until you realize how many die from disease or get eaten. Also, it is Hugging Day! So go hug that person who hates hugs! ;) Granola Bar Day and Get to Know Your Customers Day is today, as well, so... Go hug a cashier while buying granola bars and a book on squirrels.

    Welcome to the first of five straight days of date digit palindromes! A date that can be read the same forward and backward. 1.20.21 starts us off! 1.20.2021 is a seven-digit palindrome. Fun fact, today is the first time an inauguration has ever been held on a palindrome date. The next one won't be for one thousand years!

    Today is also Buttercrunch Day, Cheese Lover's Day, and Disc Jockey Day.
    Happy Popcorn Day and World Quark Day! Popcorn Day is easy, but what is "quark?" I had to look it up. It sounds like a food that is stuck halfway between yogurt and cheese and is theoretically very good for you. If any of you know what it's like, let me know if it's any good!
    Today is the best day ever. Not because it is Michigan Day, or Peking Duck Day, or Thesaurus Day though those are all very good Days. No, not even because it is MLKJ Day (which is its own category of brilliance). No, it is the best day because it is Winnie the Pooh Day!! I happen to own one of the very original Winnie the Pooh teddy bears as well as an original painting of the little boy the book is based on.
    Today is National Nothing Day! (An un-event proposed in 1972.) There are a few other things, too, but I'm tired, so I think I'll just celebrate Nothing Day by taking a nap.

    Tomorrow is a holiday cool enough to let you know in advance. National Use Your Gift Card Day! Founded on January 18, 2020, the holiday is celebrated on the third Saturday of January and encourages retailers and restaurants to offer discounts and freebies to those who use their gift cards on that day. Did you know that around 3 BILLION dollars worth in gift cards goes unredeemed in America every year?

    Welcome to Dress Up Your Pet Day, Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day, and Ratification Day! Today is the day to dress up your pet as a hot pastrami sandwich while... uh... not sure how to work in Ratification Day... Dress up your pet as someone who helped pass the Treaty of Paris and eat a Hot Pastrami Sandwich? I don't know. How would you combine these days?
