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.

National Fun At Work Day! @ National Fun At Work Day!
Jan 28 all-day

Fight the workday doldrums on January 28. It’s National Fun At Work Day!
Many people spend a good portion of their lives at work, so why should they not try to enjoy it? While looking to find fun things to do at work, let your imagination be the leader. Make sure to obtain your boss’s approval for whatever fun and exciting things you choose to do. Better yet, get your boss involved in the fun!
Dave Hemseth and Leslie Yerkes, co-authors of 301 Ways to Have Fun at Work say, “Organizations that integrate fun into work have lower levels of absenteeism, greater job satisfaction, increased productivity, and less downtime.”

National Puzzle Day @ National Puzzle Day
Jan 29 all-day

Exercise your problem brain with a puzzle. January 29th is National Puzzle Day.
Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, trivia, word searches, brain teasers or Soduku, puzzles put our minds to work.
Studies have found that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function and problem-solving skills.
Word searches and crossword puzzles have the obvious benefit of increasing vocabulary and language skills.
Sudoku, a puzzle sequencing a set of numbers on a grid, exercises the brain as well. By testing memory and logical thinking, this puzzle stimulates the brain and can improve number skills.
The bottom line is, puzzles stimulate the brain, keeping it active and practicing its skills
