According to BuzzFeed.com, there are NINE January holidays you might not be aware of that are ripe for celebration!
Today, January 7th, National Tempura Day. Like you need an excuse to eat tempura. But if one of your New Year's resolutions was to avoid fried food, now's your chance to gorge yourself on battered vegetables and shrimp. You don't have a choice — you're just observing a holiday! And while you're out, go ahead and enjoy several sake bombs. Celebrate culture, y'all.
Tomorrow, January 8th, is National Bubble Bath Day. It's January 8. You just celebrated National Tempura Day and oil is literally oozing from your pores. It's gross. So slide into your bath tub with as many bubbles as possible: hell, throw in some rose petals and make it romantic. Bonus if you have someone to share your bath with, but you can always be your own significant other.
Wednesday, January 9th, National Balloon Ascension Day. The Fox celebrated Bras For A Cause with Join The Journey and Lesmeister Balloons in October...and Oz the Great and Powerful is out in March, and you know what that means — this is the year hot air balloons become sexy again. Or at least sort of hip? Regardless, if you've never ascended in a balloon, what better time than Balloon Ascension, which is an actual thing dating back to 1793. Those who are less adventurous could just release a whole bunch of small balloons into the air. That's always pretty.
