With the beginning of a new year people usually set new traditions or goals for the next year. How many people actually follow these new traditions or goals throughout the year? Why not try something different? Try celebrating different or unusual days instead!

Here are some examples:

January 25th is Opposite Day.
January 27th is Chocolate Cake Day and Punch the Clock Day.
January 28th is National Kazoo Day.
January 29th is National Puzzle Day.
January 30th is National Inane Answering Message Day.
January 31st is Backward Day and Inspire Your Heart with Art Day.

To find out more about these days or others through out the next year go to a website called Holiday Insights   and choose the Bizarre and Unique Days on the left side of the page and then choose what month you would like to learn more about.

To get you started here are some titles that IMCPL has about topics above.
