 Looking for something to do with the family this month?  Looking for something creative and different to do? Check out our selected list of January observances for your family to research, explore and enjoy!

In January we celebrate the New Year, observe Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday (and federal holiday), seek more awareness about the war on poverty and human trafficking, and set our minds to new beginnings. January’s observances are geared to help us get back to our normal, everyday routines—while still having a little fun. January motivates us to get back in physical, financial and mental shape; get organized; and do things that inspire, encourage and celebrate us, including New Year’s Day, Celebration of Life Month, Family Fit Lifestyle Month, Financial Wellness Month, Get Organized Month, National Thank You Month, Hunt for Happiness Week, Compliment Day, Cuddle Up Day, Hugging Day, Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, Motivation and Inspiration Day, and Spouse Day.

January is full of much to celebrate, encourage, and inspire each and every one of us, our families and reunions. From our family tree to yours, here’s wishing you a happy, healthy, prosperous and blessed 2020.

"Family is the center of life and the key to eternal happiness." L. Tom Perry
