Friday, January 22nd: Hot Sauce Day #HotSauce #HotSauceDay #SomeLikeItHot #Spicy
• There are many variations and brands of it, but the one thing common to all hot sauce is the presence of chili peppers.
• Other common ingredients are salt and vinegar and some have fruits and vegetables.
• Hotter peppers—those that are higher on the Scoville scale—to make hotter sauces, although the use of pure capsaicin extract and mustard oil can increase the heat of a sauce as well.
• Ingredients vary by region, as does how hot sauces tend to be.
• Hot sauces are useful for more than flavor and heat they add to food; they also have many health benefits.
• Habanero, cayenne, jalapeño, and chipotle peppers are common in hot sauce in America.
• Habanero and scotch bonnet peppers are favorites for hot sauce in the Caribbean, while chipotles are a favorite to make the sauce in Mexico.
• Raw chilies instead of hot sauces are popular in Thailand, although Sriracha is a hot sauce made there, and it has become popular around the world.
• Hot sauce in China is usually thicker and called chili sauce; brine solutions and pickling are also often involved in Chinese hot sauces.
• Sauces made with cayenne peppers, introduced in 1807, were bottled in Massachusetts.
• Tabasco sauce, made by McIlhenny Company, is the oldest brand of hot sauce still in production and it helped jumpstart the popularity of hot sauce in America when introduced in 1868, remaining popular today.
• Another early maker of hot sauce was Maunsel White, who was making it prior to the Civil War.

• This holiday is not the same as World Penguin Day, celebrated around the world with abandon on April 25.
• The holiday sheds light on the plight of penguins relating to environmental issues such as commercial fishing and habitat destruction through climate change.

• Martin Luther King Jr. Day (officially the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., and sometimes referred to as MLK Day) is a federal holiday in the United States marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.
• King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.
• The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968.
• President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and its first observation occurred three years later.
• Some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays.
• Its official observation in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.
• The national Martin Luther King Day of Service was started by former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Harris Wofford and Atlanta Congressman John Lewis, who co-authored the King Holiday and Service Act.
• The federal legislation challenges Americans to transform the King Holiday into a day of citizen action volunteer service in honor of King.
• Bill Clinton signed the federal legislation into law on August 23, 1994.
• Since 1994, the day of service has been coordinated nationally by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency, which provides grants to organizations that coordinate service activities on MLK Day.
• The only other official national day of service in the U.S., as designated by the government, is September 11 National Day of Service (9/11 Day).

Thursday, January 14th: Organize Your Home Day #OrganizeYourHomeDay #OrganizeYourLife
• Being organized can balance your life. It can reduce stress and makes you more productive.
• It can stop you looking for things, of having to buy new things that you do not need.
• If you make it your way of life today, it can soon become a habit and you will reap the benefits for years to come.
• How to Celebrate?
o Get your cleaning supplies out and get scrubbing and organizing.
o Rope in your family to help you organize, give everyone a task and award them for finishing them.
o Hold an organizing party, and have friends help you. You can thank them by making them their favorite meal or by helping them organize their home in return.
o Make an organization itinerary. Attack a room or an area every week and you will have an organized home in no time.
o Declutter by donating things you don't use anymore.

• Remember:
o The house didn’t become cluttered overnight, so don’t expect it to get it tidied in just a few hours.
o Sometimes, what seems like clutter is actually just misplaced items.
o If you don’t love it or use it, it’s clutter.
o Nothing changes if nothing changes.

Wednesday, January 13th: Make Your Dreams Come True Day #MakeYourDreamsComeTrueDay #DreamsReallyDoComeTrue
• Make Your Dream Come True Day is a day to focus and do something to realize your goals and your dreams.
• Whatever those plans and longings are, whatever your bucket list, they do not usually happen without effort and probably lots of effort!
• So today is a perfect time to get that effort in gear and do something to make those dreams come true.
• Tips For Celebrating Make Your Dreams Come True Day
o Create your dream list. Write it down. Put it into pictures. Make a Dream Board. This makes it real and more likely to come true than if your dreams stay locked up inside your head.
o Decide what steps or actions you need to take to make these dreams come true. Break the dream down into small manageable steps. When are you going to act on these? Put a time frame to each step.
o Watch out for negative self-talk, and fears that can sabotage you before you even start. For that matter, share your dreams with supporters and stay far away from the naysayers.
o Get a mentor. Find someone who has achieved something similar to your dream. Learn from them and avoid re-inventing the wheel.
o Inspire and support loved ones to pursue their own dreams. Being a supporter of others provides you with the energy and enthusiasm to achieve your own dreams. ~ Beverly Beuermann-King.

Monday, January 11th: Learn Your Name in Morse Code Day #LearnYourNameInMorseCodeDay #MorseCode
• Morse code is a method used in telecommunication to encode text characters as standardized sequences of two different signal durations, called dots and dashes or dits and dahs.
• Samuel Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, is where the name Morse Code originates.
• International Morse Code, also known as Continental Morse Code, encodes the 26 English letters A through Z, some non-English letters, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation and procedural signals (prosigns).
• There is no distinction between upper and lower case letters.
• Because many non-English natural languages use other than the 26 Roman letters, Morse alphabets have been developed for those languages.
• The dot duration is the basic unit of time measurement in Morse code transmission with the duration of a dash being three times the duration of a dot.
• Each dot or dash within a character is followed by period of signal absence, called a space, equal to the dot duration; the letters of a word are separated by a space of duration equal to three dots, and the words are separated by a space equal to seven dots.
• In an emergency, Morse code is adaptable with improvised methods such as turning a light on and off, tapping on an object or sounding a horn or whistle, making it one of the simplest and most versatile methods of telecommunication.

Friday, January 8th: Earth’s Rotation Day #EarthsRotationDay #AsTheWorldTurns #ADayAtATime #EarthRotation #LeonFoucault
• The earth rotates on its axis and one full rotation takes 24 hours to complete.
• In 1851, the French physicist Léon Foucault demonstrated how the earth rotates by suspending a lead-filled brass ball from the top of the Pantheon in Paris.
• This device, now known as the Foucault Pendulum, showed that the plane of the swing of the pendulum rotated relative to the Earth’s own rotation.
• Isaac Newton discovered gravity but he did not actually explain the cause behind it; merely that it exists as a force.
• The Earth’s rotation is the cause for gravity and Foucault’s pendulums demonstrated this.

Thursday, January 7th: Old Rock Day #OldRockDay #NotRockAndRoll #RockLikeFossil
• No, this is not the day to celebrate old rock ’n’ roll music.
• Old Rock Day is the day that geoscientists and rock enthusiasts encourage people to celebrate and learn more about old rocks and fossils.
• Throughout human history, rocks have been important to us and we have found many uses for them: as tools, musical instruments, weapons, adornments, building materials, and as sources of fuel and crucial elements.
• Old Rock Day also celebrates fossils.
• The processes that produce fossilization are rare, and only a tiny fraction of the plants and animals that have inhabited Earth are preserved as fossils.
• We know of about 250,000 species that have been fossilized but today alone, upwards of 4.5 million species are estimated to be living on Earth.
• If you do a rough calculation multiplying the present biodiversity by the 600 million years over which life has existed, you can see that it’s only a minute percentage of life that’s been fossilized.

Wednesday, January 6th: Cuddle Up Day #CuddleTime #CuddleUpDay #CuddleUp #Snuggle
• This wacky holiday celebrates the benefits to our health and wellbeing of cuddling!
• Cuddling releases oxytocin, a hormone with tremendous health benefits.
• Oxytocin gives us those warm, fuzzy feelings but is also a hormone that reduces pain, reduces heart disease, lowers blood pressure, and also reduces stress and anxiety.
• Cuddling also releases dopamine, a hormone that stimulates the brain, improves memory and improves focus.

Tuesday, January 5th: National Bird Day #NationalBirdDay
• National Bird Day is a holiday aimed at celebrating birds and raising awareness of avian conservation.
• Over 10,000 bird species have been evaluated regarding their endangerment status. Of those, 159 are extinct, 5 are now extinct in the wild, 223 are critically endangered/at high risk of extinction and 460 species are endangered for a total of 847 species of birds extinct or at high risk of extinction. That is 12% of all living bird species.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_endangered_birds
• Birds help maintain sustainable population levels of their prey/predator species.
• Many birds are important in plant reproduction through their services as pollinators/seed dispersers.
• Some birds are considered keystone species as their presence in an ecosystem affects other species (animal and plant species both) indirectly through habitat formation/creation and plant germination processes through bird feeding habits.
• Habitat loss, overhunting and predator introduction have led to significant avian endangerment and vulnerability.
