Celebrate January!

While cleaning my files I found a folder full of fun and silly reasons to make your day a special day ... things to celebrate ... every day ... any day.   I remember having some fun with these years ago, using some of these ideas for a while before forgetting about them.  I've found a few more and thought they'd be a fun addition to the blog.  Some of these are quite ridiculous, but several are great for family fun, for preschool fun, for party fun, or just for fun!
Happy Celebrating!
