January is actually the cruelest month- there are very few real holidays
for the Book Elves to celebrate, so they fall back on “second-tier”
celebrations, for better or (usually) worse. One “holiday” they are
especially fond of is January 3rd's Fruitcake Toss Day which coincides
(coincidentally?) with Humiliation Day. We have barely recovered from Bean
Day on the 6th before it's time for Bubble Bath Day on the 8th. Play God
Day (January 9) has been permanently banned in the Cataloging Cave, but
the 10th's Peculiar People Day is always a good time. The less said about
Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day on the 12th the better, likewise the 14th’s
Dress Up Your Pet Day -that may be the next day we have to ban.

(the 19th), National Pie Day (the 23rd) and National Kazoo Day (the 28th)
