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!!

National Chocolate Cake Day @ National Chocolate Cake Day
Jan 27 all-day

Do we need a birthday, wedding or anniversary to have chocolate cake? Not on January 27, because it’s National Chocolate Cake Day.
In America, chocolate was consumed primarily as a beverage until the 1830’s or 40’s. Chocolate cakes, as we think of them today, mostly did not exist then. According to the Dover Post, the chocolate cake was born in 1765 when a doctor and a chocolate maker teamed up in an old mill. They ground up cocoa beans between huge millstones to make a thick syrup. The liquid was poured into molds shaped like cakes, which were meant to be transformed into a beverage.
A popular Philadelphia cookbook author, Eliza Leslie, published the earliest chocolate cake recipe in 1847 in The Lady’s Recipe Book. Unlike chocolate cakes we know today, this recipe used chopped chocolate. Other cooks of the time such as Sarah Tyson Rorer and Maria Parloa all made contributions to the development of the chocolate cake and were prolific authors of cookbooks.
The first boxed cake mix was created by a company called O. Duff and Sons in the late 1920’s. Betty Crocker released their first dry cake mixes in 1947.

National Big Wig Day @ National Big Wig Day
Jan 28 all-day

Putting the “fun” in fundraising while bringing awareness to a cause close to many hearts, National Big Wig Day! on the last Friday in January gives everyone an opportunity to play an important role, the role of the Big Wig.
National Big Wig Day™! is both an expression of the potential inside of all of us and an entertaining opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others. To do this, we must dust off our hidden talents and bring them forth without hesitation. Be bold and even a little bit courageous. Roll up your sleeves and grab a few friends because that always makes it more enjoyable and the journey more exciting. But whatever you do, bring your Big Wig with you. Because we all have one inside us and even Big Wigs need to have fun!
Call it what we will, CEO, director or pilot, we are the Big Wigs in our lives. National Big Wig Day™! reminds us that, regardless of title, we can make a difference and improve the lives of others through celebration.
