Happy belated New Year! January is the first month of the year, and it’s filled with people making resolutions and promises of lifestyle changes (if you can keep them). In addition to one of the biggest celebrations the world sees every year, January has many more celebrations, traditions and fun facts:

  • January is National Soup Month in the United States.

  • January is named after the Roman god Janus

    who was always shown as having two heads. He looked back to the last year and forward to the new one.

  • More couples separate or divorce in January

    than in any other month.

  • January in the Northern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent to July

    in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa.

  • Sometimes the Saxons called January the wolf month

    because hungry wolves would come into their towns searching for food this time of year.

  • January 14 (the day Cubacel promo starts) is also Dress up your pet day.

    You can put a fedora on your pooch or dress the cat in a bumble-bee costume, you name it, there’s no better day for it!
