January is…

Everybody knows October is Halloween, November is Thanksgiving and December is Christmas. January 1 is New Year’s Day, but the festivities don’t last very long. February has Valentine’s Day and March St. Pat’s. But besides cold, dreary days, what does January have?

There aren’t really any fun January projects (unless you count putting away the holiday decorations or cleaning out the closets…please don’t say you count these as fun). There aren’t any holidays that warrant sweets or other cheery décor. Other than bundling up in bed with a few sleeping dogs and a good book, I just can’t seem to find any worthwhile January activities.

Surely you have some fun January traditions. If so, I’d love to hear about them! Maybe you have a special January event or happening that you want to share. Can anyone help me figure out what to do for the rest of the month? Even my dogs are beginning to get bored with me, I fear!

What does January mean to you?

{note: That gorgeous snowy scene is not my picture…in fact, it was a balmy 62 in my neck of the woods today. Maybe this bizarre-o weather is making January less fun?}
