January Holidays and Special Days


January Holidays and Special Days

{It’s Just January, what should we celebrate?}

January is an awesome month to celebrate. It starts out with a BANG on New Year’s Day, most places are seeing first big snow days, and many people are making {and having fun breaking} New Year’s Resolutions. We get to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, Run up the Flagpole and See if Anyone Salutes Day, and my boy’s favorite, Penguin Awareness Day! What are your favorite days to celebrate in January?
