This List of January Holidays Makes Post-Christmas Planning Easy

The new year starts with plenty of holidays worth celebrating.

January is all about new beginnings! And while the month kicks off with a New Year's Eve midnight celebration and New Year's Day festivities, the holidays don't stop there. As 2022 kicks off, an entire month of fun starts with International Creativity Month, National Get Organized Month, and many more small holidays that are definitely worth celebrating.

The celebrations start with National Bubble Wrap Day (an entire day dedicated to popping those addictive little bubbles!) and Epiphany, which is actually the day you're supposed to take your Christmas tree down.

Plenty of tasty holidays are scattered through the month as well, with National Popcorn Day and National Cheese Lovers Day. January might also be the sweetest month with holidays like National Blonde Brownie Day on the 22nd, immediately followed by National Pie Day on the 23rd. Then, mark your calendars for thoughtful days like National Cuddle Day on the 6th or National Compliment Day on the 24th.

Here are all the holidays and observances in January.
