Jollydays! Fight the January blues...

They do say that January is the most depressing month of the year - with January 18th being dubbed as ‘Blue Monday’. Christmas is over, we’re all hard up and feeling overweight, the weather is bleak… well I thought I’d try and inject a bit of  warmth for you with my alternative calendar dates.

So, forget adding ‘pay credit card’, ’dentist appointment’,  or ‘worm dog’ onto your calendar, add these on instead - they’re much nicer!


  • 21st: Squirrel Appreciation Day
    (after all, who doesn’t appreciate a squirrel?)
  • 22nd: Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day 
    (poor cats, only get answered once a year - so make sure you don’t miss this date!)
  • 23rd: Pie Day
  • 24th: Talk Like a Grizzled Old Prospector Day (the day you’re officially allowed to call everyone a ‘varmint’)
  • 25th: Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day
  • 27th: Chocolate Cake Day(not to be confused with Pie Day)
  • 29th: International Fun at Work Day (see how fast you can spin round on your office chair, I dare you!)


  • 2nd: Groundhog Day and Hedgehog Day (also Marmot Day and Sled Dog Day, so if you don’t like hedgehogs…) 
  • 3rd: Carrot Cake Day
  • 4th: Stuffed Mushroom Day (although, as Shirley Conran once said, life is too short to stuff a mushroom so you may decide to skip this one)
  • 5th: Working Naked Day…ooh la la! (Also Shower with a Friend Day - could be quite a day!)
  • 6th: Take Your Child to the Library Day (a sensible one!)
  • 10th: Plimsoll Day (or, if its raining, you can observe Umbrella Day instead)
  • 14th: Ferris Wheel Day (oh, and Valentine’s Day - why not combine the two and take your loved one to the fair?)
  • 15th: Hippo Day
  • 17th: Random Act of Kindness Day
  • 18th: Drink Wine Day
  • 20th: Handcuff Day (interpret this as you will…)
  • 21st: Sticky Bun Day
  • 23rd: International  Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
    (your dog may do better with this one than you)
  • 26th: Tell a Fairytale Day
  • 27th: World Sword Swallowers Day
    (careful now…)
  • 28th: Tooth Fairy Day
  • 29th:  Leap Year Day
    (only comes every four years, so enjoy your extra free day this year by doing something luxuriatingly lovely - or propose to someone, I think that’s the other thing you’re supposed to do)

There now, I bet your calendar looks much more jolly now!
