Daily Holidays - January 25

National Irish Coffee Day 1942 proved a fortuitous year for transatlantic travellers wearied by the cold and damp conditions of an Irish winter. Thanks to the innovative imagination of bartender Joe Sheridan, they were soon to have their cockles delightfully warmed by an almost decadent blend of fine Irish whiskey with the irresistible taste and aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Combined with the subtle sweetness of brown sugar and sipped through the luxurious density of whipped cream, it was a recipe that would become a global hit that needed no specific weather conditions to be enjoyed. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/irish-coffee-day/

A Room of One's Own Day Woolf’s 1928 essay ‘A Room of One’s Own’ was surely the inspiration behind A Room Of One’s Own Day. While the essay itself was focused on the subject of women’s access to education, in these more enlightened times we can probably relax the rules a little and make it a day purely for ourselves. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/a-room-of-ones-own-day/

Opposite Day Don’t celebrate Opposite Day by not doing everything the right way around. Behave exactly as you wouldn’t on a normal day, and undertake tasks in a straight-forward, back-to-front manner. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/opposite-day/

Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day There’s nothing quite as fun as popping bubble wrap bubbles. Whether you’re unpacking a parcel, playing virtual bubble wrap games online, or have gone out to buy bubble wrap especially, Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is the day to indulge and get popping!
