January Holidays

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.

New Year's Day - January 1st

January 1st marks the beginning of the New Year on the Roman calendar, which means we've all got some New Year's resolutions to whip up. Think you'll be able to stick by 'em this time? Check out Kidzworld's holiday exercise and eating tips to get a healthy jumpstart this year!

Elvis' Birthday - January 8th

January HolidaysElvis 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!

I, personally, think that the LGBTQ+ community is appropriate to talk about at school. I agree with you. We have the freedom to talk about whatever we want and I think at this age we are mature enough to understand this concept. While it is a unusual thing to talk about in school, I think it's perfectly fine to talk about. Me and my friends talk about this all the time and no one has ever stopped us and told us it was wrong. I was surprised when this happened because we go to a catholic school and catholic schools don't normally support talking about these things. Some teachers just don't understand at this age we are getting more mature and probably can understand more personal subjects better than adults can. I am honestly angry that your teachers said it wasn't appropriate for school. It's just a topic to talk about! At least you guys weren't talking about something even more sensitive than this like ISIS or the Holocaust.

They act like my opinions don't matter just because I'm young. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to attack people needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding. Can't tell if you're just making a joke or if you're making fun of the spectrum.. I'm making fun of this entire "issue". And yes, the LGBTQRSTUVWYXZ community is innapropriate for school. No one needs to know who you're ######## attracted to, as after all, at such a young age, you shouldn't be worried about that.
