Hi! Happy January! We’re speeding into the future here, and we’ve got a lot to celebrate this month. 2017, International Kiss A Ginger Day, Cheese Lovers Day and more! Read on to see what we’re celebrating this month.
First up we’ve got New Year’s Day and Bloody Mary Day (January 1). Since we’re gonna need it, January 2 is National Motivation and Inspiration Day, and National Science Fiction Day. We’re suckers for some good sci fi. Not a lot of holidays this week, but TONS OF BIRTHDAYS!

Starting off this week, we have Bubble Bath Day (January 8)! Sit back and reeeeeelax. Next is Word Nerd Day (January 9) followed by No Pants Subway Ride Day (January 10). We’ve never wanted to ride the subway so much before. January 11 is a busy day with National Hot Toddy Day, Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day, and Secret Pal Day. On January 12, have some tea and kiss a redhead: it’s National Hot Tea Day and International Kiss A Ginger Day. It’s Rubber Duckie Day, and Public Radio Broadcasting Day on January 13. January 14th means dressing up your pet and getting your shit together because it’s Dress Up Your Pet Day, and Organize Your Home Day. Do you like figs? Get ready: it’s National Fig Newton Day on January 16.

Do you like dragons? It’s Appreciate a Dragon Day on January 16. The 17th is National Hot Buttered Rum Day, so you should get to buttering your rum. Winnie the Pooh Day and Thesaurus Day are both happening on January 18, and January 19th is Popcorn Day. It seems like no coincidence that International Fetish Day and Cheese Lovers Day are on the same day (January 20). Get out your sweats and hug a squirrel, because it’s International Sweatpants Day, Squirrel Appreciation Day, and National Hug Day (January 21). Ready your taste buds and put hot sauce on everything: National Hot Sauce Day is January 22.
