Beat the winter blues by celebrating January’s lesser-known holidays.

HolidayDateHow to Celebrate
Festival of Sleep Day

January 3

Need some extra Z’s after all the holiday excitement? This is the holiday for you. Try to go to bed a bit earlier, and don’t feel guilty about pressing the snooze button the next morning.

National Spaghetti Day

January 4

Try a new sauce, topping or twist on your go-to spaghetti recipe. Or try a new spaghetti variety entirely, like thick cut, chickpea or lentil noodles.

Bubble Bath Day

January 8

In addition to bubble bath, our stores offer little luxuries like bath bombs, Epsom salts and bath oils. Consider picking up a magazine or paperback for an extra-relaxing soak.

Houseplant Appreciation Day

January 10

Houseplants are truly amazing — from purifying the air to helping reduce stress, they boast incredible benefits. Research the plant that’s best for your space, find a cute pot, then give your new housemate a name.

National Hot Tea Day

January 12

Elevate a cozy cup of tea by enjoying it from a fancy china cup (complete with a saucer, of course!), adding a splash of milk like the Brits, or garnishing with a fresh slice of orange or lemon.

Dress Up Your Pet Day

January 14

This silly holiday is sure to brighten up any winter day. Pull out last year’s Halloween costume or get creative with items around the house. Just make sure to reward your pet with a treat after you snap photos.

National Popcorn Day

January 19

Buttered popcorn is always a hit, but consider experimenting with different seasoning powders like ranch, white cheddar and nacho cheese. You can also mix in some of your favorited candy-coated chocolates for a sweet-and-savory mix.

National Puzzle Day

January 29

To make puzzle-creating even more delightful, listen to music, a podcast or an audiobook while piecing together a puzzle. If it’s a design you love, consider framing the puzzle as a piece of artwork for your home.
