National Opposite Day @ National Opposite Day
Jan 25 all-day

National Opposite Day is observed annually on January 25th.
Good morning, or is it good night? Hello, or is it goodbye? I am cold, or am I hot?
National Opposite Day is a day to have fun all day long saying exactly opposite of what you really mean. This day has kids rejoicing everywhere. It is also a great day for adults to play along and break out of the winter blues. Maybe we should have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner!
Most sources say that National Opposite Day is always observed on January 25th while other sources say it is celebrated by some on January 7th. It is also believed to be celebrated by a group of people on the 25th of each month of the year.

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!!
