National Compliment Day @ National Compliment Day
Jan 24 all-day

What a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day or to give credit for a job well done! Give an extra compliment on National Compliment Day which is observed annually on January 24.
THANK YOU for checking out our Community Calendar! My, you look great today!!
A compliment has a powerful effect. It can instill confidence in a child, or validate someone’s hard work. A compliment not only improves the receiver’s mood, but it also says something about the giver. It tells them you noticed. Whether we recognize someone’s achievement or their classic style, a compliment can go a long way.
To give a great compliment, first be sincere. People have a way of knowing when we are fake. If you don’t mean it, it’s worse than getting a thoughtless birthday gift.
Complimenting character versus a new haircut are different rewards. The first says you respect the person and the other tells them you paid attention. Sometimes the receiver needs to hear one or the other, or both.
Human beings like to be unique, original. Strive to compliment what makes a person stand out above the rest. Take the time to reflect on what you admire about the person.

National Peanut Butter Day @ National Peanut Butter Day
Jan 24 all-day

National Peanut Butter Day on January 24th recognizes an American staple in our pantries. Whether creamy or chunky, with chocolate or with jelly, peanut butter gets the recognition it deserves each year on this day.

The early peanut butter made by the Aztecs and Incas around 1000 BC was more of a paste and not nearly as creamy as the peanut butter we know now.

National Plan for Vacation Day @ National Plan for Vacation Day
Jan 25 all-day

National Plan for Vacation Day, on the last Tuesday in January, reminds us to plan our vacation at the start of the year for the rest of the year. The early bird gets to pack their bags and fly away to a little fun and relaxation!
With the frigid temperatures and growing snow piles, it’s easy to start daydreaming of sunny skies, sand castles, and the vacation days to come. But, for many Americans, those vacation dreams turn out to be just that: a dream.
Each year, Americans leave more than 600 million vacation days unused. Our work martyr attitudes combined with a culture of silence in the workplace is keeping workers at their desks instead of using their time off.
To change this, National Plan for Vacation Day reminds us to plan our vacation at the start of the year for the rest of the year. When it comes to taking a vacation, it’s the planners of the world who get the job done. According to Project: Time Off, planners are more likely to take all their vacation time in a given work year and take more extended vacations than non-planners. They’re also happier with their jobs, relationships, and health, so don’t knock the planners who get out the door to vacation! Get planning!!

National Peanut Brittle Day @ National Peanut Brittle Day
Jan 26 all-day

National Peanut Brittle Day is observed on January 26th. A hard, flat candy confection, peanut brittle is enjoyed throughout the United States.

Peanut Brittle includes caramelized sugar or corn syrup. Nuts are added to the molten sugar and then poured onto a flat surface such as granite or marble and smoothed into a thin sheet. The candy cools into a hard, brittle treat that is broken into smaller pieces. Some of the best brittles are hand-stretched into a thin, easily cracked candy that melts in the mouth.

The history of peanut brittle is uncertain, though one legend says it was all a mistake. The story goes that a southern woman was making taffy and instead of using cream of tartar, she used baking soda by accident.

 

 

National Spouses Day @ National Spouses Day
Jan 26 all-day

National Spouses Day is observed annually on January 26.
Dedicated to recognizing spouses everywhere, National Spouses Day reminds us to take time for our mate. From being thankful for fulfillment and security of a long-term relationship to the boost of morale and well-being provided by spouses, there are many reasons to celebrate. This day is a time to show your spouse that you care and appreciate all of the things that he or she does for you and the home.
Life gets busy, and we can often take for granted how our spouse improves our life.
Pay a heartfelt thank you or compliment to the love of your life.
National Spouses Day is a non-gift giving day, so spend time together and reconnect. Don’t forget to say, “I love you.” Think of those who have lost their spouses; how blessed you are to have each other!!
