Jan 03, 2016

Another year has begun and we have New Year's resolutions to stick to and holiday treats to work off. Don't worry - January has some cool holidays to take your mind off the fact that winter break is over and you're heading back to school. Check out what you have to look forward to.

Elvis' Birthday - January 8th

Elvis Presley's BirthdayElvis Presley's Birthday

OK, so it's not an official holiday but Elvis Presley, the king of rock 'n roll, was born on January 8th, 1935. Celebrations are held all over the world by Elvis fans, but none are as glitzy or glamorous as those held at Graceland. For four solid days there will be banquets, parties and dances for Elvis fanatics to attend.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - January 18th

Every third Monday in January is set aside to honor a man who changed the lives of African-Americans. Upset that African-Americans had to ride in the back of public buses among other many other inequities - Martin Luther King, Jr. convinced others who didn't agree with the law not to use public transit. After 382 days of people being threatened, attacked, and even jailed, the Supreme Court declared that the Alabama State law had to be changed. Do you have anything ?

Robbie Burns Day - January 25th

Robbie Burns Day is a Scottish holiday in honor of poet and writer Robert Burns, who was born on January 25th, 1759 in Alloway, Scotland. He's famous for writing songs such as Auld Lang Syne (the song people sing at New Year's), Ye Banks and Breaes of Bonnie Doon and My Love's Like a Red, Red Rose. People around the world celebrate his birthday every year on January 25th - the perfect day to dig into a feast of haggis!
