What's on the Calendar

For a lot of people, once New Years has come and gone January is a pretty blah month. Not so. There are some truly unique (okay, also some truly strange) weeks of celebration in January, not to mention some month-long celebrations. Some of these holidays I applaud whole heartedly--their subject matter needs to be front and center. With the others, I'd really, really like to know the reasoning behind celebrating them. If, however, you need a reason for getting into a celebratory mood (or just perhaps need a chuckle), try some of the following:
