#January #calendar #holidays #JanuaryHolidays

After the festivities and food of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day, all within five weeks, January can be a time of letdown for holiday enthusiasts. For those who think the rest of January is bereft of opportunities to celebrate, consider these holidays which may or may not have made it onto your calendar.

Since many of these holidays commemorate unusual items, events, or situations, it should not be surprising that more than a few Commonplace articles have been written on these subjects. Where appropriate, links are provided to take you to more trivia, fun facts, humor, and interesting notions.
