Kooky January Holidays

When we think of holidays in January, we think of New Year's Day and Martin Luther King's Birthday. But did you know that during the first month of the year we also pay homage to popcorn? And squirrels? And kazoos?!

It's true. January plays host to some of our nation's more obscure and unusual holidays, so we came up with a sampling of some of our favorites. You probably won't find any Hallmark cards to send to your friends on these days, so we leave it to you to celebrate however you see fit.
