    Daily Holidays – January 7

    I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day is when we as human beings fight back against the injustices inflicted upon us, to show that we cannot be controlled nor contained like wild animals. To show that we have our own lives and our own prerogatives. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/im-not-going-to-take-it-anymore-day/

    Fruit Cake Toss Day Let’s be honest: nobody really likes fruitcake, and nobody ever really eats it, either. Heavy, flavorless and always too sweet, fruitcake is one of our century’s biggest holiday jokes. So when Christmas is over, and you’ve taken the tinsel down, and thrown out the tree, what should you do with that old fruitcake that you’ve been using to prop open the door/to replace a missing limb/as a headrest? Fruitcake Toss Day has a “fruitful” answer (see what we did there?). The event, which is reported as having originated in Manitou Springs, Colorado, was created in order to help people get rid of unwanted fruitcake after Christmas. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/fruitcake-toss-day/

    Old Rock Day despite some misconception, is not a day of celebrating classic Rock ‘n’ Roll tunes of days gone by but is, in fact, the day that Geologists and amateur rock enthusiasts take it upon themselves to show their appreciation of all things fossilised and stony. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/old-rock-day/

    Bobble Head Day Take me out to the ball game! Take me out the fun! Buy me some peanuts and … bobbleheads? That’s right! Bobblehead day is when we celebrate the fantastic development that are bobblehead dolls! Whether you’re buying them for your favorite baseball team, or one of those commemorative presidential bobbleheads, Bobblehead Day is your opportunity to get out there and learn a bit about these iconic toys history! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/bobblehead-day/

    1. Toss that fruit cake!

    :bounce: Fruit cake is so gross.

      2. I agree

      I wonder if Old Rock Day and Fruitcake Toss Day are somehow one in the same????????
