Holidays in January (2020 Calendar)

It’s that time of the year again, where we pretend that everything is going to change and it really isn’t. The time where you stick to your resolutions for a couple of weeks before you inevitably give up. Trust me, I usually one of those people. We also come to the time of the month that I tell you the names of a whole bunch of holidays and y’all can decide if you want to celebrate them or not. I just like knowing what they are. I am also hoping that I’m around more this year. Last year is behind me and I hope to keep it there. But without further ado, here are the holidays for the month of January.
