Hello January and welcome 2016! Time for the free downloadable January 2016 Calendar. Last year each month followed the same theme. This year I’m going to mix it up and do something different each month!

January Holidays

January 1st is New Year’s Day. Thank goodness Festival of Sleep Day is January 3rd… because we’ll all need it. If you received a fruitcake and aren’t sure what to do with it, the 3rd is also Fruitcake Toss Day. Go crazy ladies because January 8th is Male Watchers Day… be creepy, you have an excuse. The 14th is Dress Up Your Pet Day (run Fido, run). Remember all those New Year’s resolutions you made, well the 17th is Ditch New Years Resolutions Day… like you didn’t already! The 23rd is Measure Your Feet Day, um… ok?! The 24th is Beer Can Appreciation Day and Compliment Day. The perfect opportunity to tell someone what a lovely beer can they have. Wrap up the month with Inspire Your Heart with Art Day on the 31st. Shouldn’t that be everyday 🙂

January History

The original Roman calendar only had 10 months and did not include January and February. They were added later. January was named after the Roman god Janus. Janus had two faces. One to look forward into the coming year and one to look backwards into the past year.
