Today is National Blueberry Pancake Day and January is National Oatmeal Month.

Most are probably proclaimed by some industry or trade association or interest group.

Might also add that it is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day.

23. Odd to Have a Celebration of BARBECUED Meat in JANUARY

Welcome to Meat Week, the only national week-long holiday dedicated to the celebration of barbecued meats.


I can't imagine very many people are using their barbecues this week.
I actually did barbecue a steak last weekend, but we're in California and it was still pretty damn cold out.

but cloudy, so it will seem cooler. And will be rainy Wednesday and then the 50s the rest of the week. I do not like 70 degrees. This is winter and I like the cold temperatures.

27. and people bitch about kwanzaa being a made-up holiday?

What the hay is Meat Week?
Meat Week is a national holiday started in 2005. Each January, for 8 consecutive nights, people across the country gather over piles of BBQ. In every participating city, there is a devoted Captain who creates the schedule of restaurants. Each city develops their own traditions, but Meat Week typically focuses on good ol' American BBQ: Pork, ribs, brisket, barbecued chicken, and anything else you can smoke and smother in sauce.


well, looking at the map, my community is not doing anything. on the other hand, there are only two bbq places in town, and neither is that good.
