January is well known for New Year's celebrations and resolutions. However, there are many lesser-known holidays which occur throughout the month. Some special days you might not see on your wall calendar:
- Fruitcake Toss Day (Jan. 3)
- Dress Up Your Pet Day (Jan. 14)
- Winnie the Pooh Day (Jan. 18)
- Penguin Awareness Day (Jan. 20)
- Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day (last Monday of the month)
