2020 has been a difficult year for all of us and it’s safe to say there isn’t a living soul on earth who will be sad to see the back of it. So apart from the fact that 2021 will hopefully bring ‘normality’ back to the world, albeit slowly, what are the national holidays coming up that we can look forward to in January? In a month usually filled with bad weather, short days and a little extra weight from all the festive delicacies, this month is packed full of fun (and tasty) days to get involved with. Use your social media platforms to inspire your followers and kick off the new year in style, with the following key dates… 🎉
While most of us want to shut ourselves away on New Year’s Day to nurse the hangovers from the night before, Saturday 2nd January brings World Introvert Day; a day that serves as an opportunity for people around the world to better understand and appreciate introverts. An introvert is best defined as someone who focuses on internal feelings rather than external sources of stimulation and will celebrated globally on Saturday. 😄
After all the festive food prep over the last few days, the last thing you want to do in the first week of January is stress over what to have for dinner. Well good thing we’ve got you covered, as National Spaghetti Day 🍝 is here! Tuck into a good ol’ spag-bol (4th), cuddle up to a pet or a loved one for Cuddle Up Day ❤️ (6th) and then run yourself a much deserved Bubble Bath on Friday, for Bubble Bath Day 🛀 (8th). Don’t forget to order yourself a rubber duck in time for Rubber Ducky Day! (13th) 🦆
New year, new me! January brings plenty of opportunities to shake up our lifestyles for the better, including events and challenges such as Dry January and Veganuary. It’s also a good time to try and make changes to your home and work life. Sunday 10th January gives us an opportunity to save some pennies for the new year in Cut Your Energy Costs Day 💡, followed by Clean Off Your Desk Day 🖥 (11th). Use this week to implement changes in your life to bring you a happier and healthier you for 2021.
Monday 18th January is renowned for being ‘Blue Monday’, the day that’s dubbed ‘the saddest day of the year’, but did you know it’s also shared with our good friend Winnie the Pooh 🍯 in Winnie the Pooh Day? Enough to bring a smile to your face, we say!
While Christmas time brings plenty for your tastebuds to celebrate, January is no different with National Popcorn Day 🍿 (19th), National Pie Day 🥧 (23rd), National Peanut Butter Day 🥜 (24th), Chocolate Cake Day 🎂 (27th) and Croissant Day 🥐 (30th). Maybe the diet can wait for February?… 🤤
