What are 5 Crazy & Fun Holidays to Celebrate in January?
BRYAN VOGT HERE! Don’t know about national beer can appreciation day? Or answer your cat’s questions day? Well, you’re about to find out these are actual holidays in January that you still have time to celebrate! But first I wanted to make you aware of two other holidays that hopefully you were able to celebrate. January 3rd was Fruitcake toss day; it is the time when it is finally socially acceptable to trash all of the holiday fruitcakes you received! Or on January 14th was National dress-up your pet day! Your pet may not have loved the fact that there’s an entire day dedicated to making them look extra fancy, but your Instagram followers I’m sure thanked you for it! With that said! Here are 5 actual January holidays you can celebrate this month!
1. JANUARY 16: NATIONAL NOTHING DAY
Thanks to a California newspaper. The “un-event,” which many Americans have been celebrating since 1973 by, well, doing nothing. Sadly, the holiday has passed already. But I’m sure if you cleared your calendar, you could make some room for it in the near future!
2. JANUARY 21: NATIONAL HUGGING DAY
In 1986, A pastor from Michigan—founded National Hugging Day as a small event in his hometown. Today, it’s celebrated around the world. And in today’s crazy world giving a hug to a family member, close friend, or somebody you love wouldn’t be a bad thing, you think?!
3. JANUARY 22: ANSWER YOUR CAT’S QUESTIONS DAY
If your feline isn’t forthcoming with his or her inquiries, take the opportunity to ponder the following: “What would a cat have questions about?” And yes, this is a real holiday! The exact year in which the first holiday was celebrated is not known. But Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat.com. are the ones that started it. Personally, I think it would be much easier on the owners if the cats were able to have speech bubbles. Like Garfield. But that’s just me!
4. NATIONAL BEER CAN APPRECIATION DAY
January 24, 1935, was a momentous day for suds lovers: It’s the day the first canned beer was sold in America. Since then, the beer can has become a barbecue staple, a collector’s item, and a maligned receptacle for some beer snobs (though craft beer connoisseurs have brought cans back in a major way). So today, pause before chugging, shotgunning, or crushing, and take a moment to reflect on what your beer can…. means to you.
5. JANUARY 28: BUBBLE WRAP APPRECIATION DAY
Celebrated on the last Monday of January Bubble wrap was actually designed to be used as wallpaper back in the 1950s. In 1957, two scientists wanted to bring wallpaper to market with a raised texture. As an experiment, they glued two shower curtains together, sealing them so tightly that air bubbles were created. But few consumers liked the padded cell look! And it never took off! However, popping it has now been a proven therapy to reduce stress and was actually a finalist in the 2016 Toy Hall of fame!
What’s great about these holidays is if you missed one you can still go back and celebrate National Nothing Day! Giving a hug is never a bad thing. Might want to ask first. Answer your cat’s questions you can always do. But I wouldn’t suggest bragging about it on social media. And of course, many people celebrate with beer quite often. Even if it’s not in a can. And last but not least bubble wrap does have some amazing uses, but I also understand it can be great for packing to move into your dream home too! If you know someone who is tired of having put their life on hold these past two years and is wanting to make a move. Have them call or text me! I would love to help them! That’s all for today!
