🗓Fun Days to Celebrate This Month & a Free Calendar for your Fridge

January 2021

January 5, 2021

I love celebrating all the fun national holidays, but I hate missing out on them because I didn't see anyone post about them until late that night. 

During this pandemic, it's a little bit harder to keep up, but we'll keep trying!

We have created a calendar for your fridge so you never miss out on the fun again. You can get it here:

This month you won't want to miss:

January 1 - New Year's Day

January 4 - National Spaghetti Day

Celebrate by visiting one of the many local authentic Italian restaurants we have in the area.

January 8 - National Take the Stairs Day

Thomas Jefferson lived to be 83 at a time when the life expectancy was 40 years old, and he walked 4 miles every day. So, instead of taking an elevator or escalator, try walking up the stairs today instead.

January 10 - Houseplant Appreciation Day

Visit a local garden center to find a beautiful new houseplant! Did you know that houseplants help to clean and add moisture to the air? There are many great benefits of having a houseplant (or 2 or 3!)

January 13 - Make Your Dreams Come True Day

With help from your whole family, create a Family Vision Board for this year, and then make plans to achieve those goals and dreams. Click here for more information about making a Family Vision Board.

January 14 - Dress Up Your Pet Day

We want to see your dressed-up pets! Follow us on Instagram HERE. Then tag us in your posts on this day and use our special hashtag: #MKJohnstownDressYourPets. We'll be featuring some of your pets throughout the week on our Instagram page!

January 17 & 18 - 

January 19 - National Popcorn Day

What goes great with Popcorn? MOVIES! Either go to the movies, or curl up with a big bowl of popcorn at home and snuggle up to have a movie marathon! Need ideas? Look at this Popcorn recipe.

January 20 - National Cheese Lover's Day

Cheese...it's Gouda! (Like that play on words there?) There are SO many varieties of delicious cheese, but how do you know which are good for melting, crumbling or grating? With our handy guide, you'll never be led astray again! Check out our guide: "8 Types of Cheese & how to Eat Them".

January 23 - National Pie Day

January 25 - National Seed Swap Day

Have some friends over and invite each one of them to bring one seed packet (or multiple packets depending on how many people you are inviting). It's up to you to determine if they should be flowers, vegetables or fruits, or a mixture of all three. Gather up some newspaper, purchase some soil, and you're all set to make your own Newspaper Seed Planters. Share the seeds with each other, and you'll each have a variety of plants to enjoy this spring!

January 26 - National Spouses Day

It's a great day for a date night with your spouse! Whether you hire a sitter and go out, or wait until the kids are in bed, plan a night to enjoy together. Play a game, try a new recipe, go do something you've been wanting to try (hello Axe Throwing!)... whatever you decide, you'll be glad you did!

January 29 - National Puzzle Day

My mind went directly to jigsaw puzzles when I saw this, but there are many different puzzles. Here's a craft for those lost puzzle pieces. May I suggest trying your hand at an Escape Room? You have to solve a myriad of puzzles in order to escape in the given amount of time, and you're sure to have fun while doing it! Of course, if jigsaw puzzles are more your cup of tea, pick out a new one and get the whole family involved. Can you put it all together in one day, or do you like to let it sit out and work on it a little each day?
