About Daily Calendar Holidays:

January It's a brand new year!!

January is one of the two coldest months of the year in the northern hemisphere. But, there's many, many holidays big and small, to help keep you warm.

The big holidays this month include: New Years Day, Martin Luther King Day

Notable, cute little holidays:  Houseplant Appreciation Day, World Introvert Day, Global Belly Laugh Day

We've quickly come to the coldest, and one of the snowiest months of the year. Let's be thankful there's only 28 or 29 days this month. Early in the month, a ground hog will predict how much longer winter will last. In mid month, despite the weather, Valentine's Day will at least warm our hearts, if not our toes.

The big holidays this month include: Ground Hog's Day, Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, Chinese New Years

Notable and cute little holidays: Feed the Birds Day, Tell a Fairy Tale Day, Public Sleeping Day

March Spring arrives this month. For those of us in the warmer parts of the country, the spring weather is already quite pleasant, and getting warmer by the day. For those of us in the north, we are watching the snow slowing recede, and anxiously awaiting the first blooms of spring.

The big holidays this month include: St. Patrick's Day, a day when everyone is Irish. In some years, Easter falls in March, too.

Among the smaller and often cute holidays, we find: Plant a Flower Day, The Ides of March (Et tu, Brutus?), Extraterrestrial Abductions Day

April Spring is in bloom everywhere in the country. Have you ever seen so many daffodils and tulips? It's time to put away the snow shovels, and break out the shorts. Ps. Don't forget the suntan lotion.

The big holidays this month include: April Fool's Day when the joke is on you, Easter sometimes falls in April

Among the smaller and cute holidays, we find: National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, Walk on Your Wild Side Day, Kiss Your Mate Day
May This month we celebrate mom and ponder all those "Momisms". May also brings warm temperatures and millions of spring flowers. There's more than enough flowers for Kentucky Derby Day (Mint Juleps anyone!?), May  Day and all the other spring and garden days that are held this month. Speaking of gardens, gardeners are most likely to be found out in the garden with their hands in some warm, rich soil.

May is a huge month for major holidays. The big holidays this month include: Kentucky Derby Day, Mother's Day, Memorial Day

Among the other special, and cute holidays, we find: Lilac Sunday, Be a Millionaire Day, National Sea Monkey Day
June Summer arrives. School is out and summer vacation begins. The pool and beaches are open. The summer heat and humidity is still a few weeks away for most of us.
