Hat Day, Night of Balloons, Golden Globe Awards, more

January 15th, 2012, is National Hat Day, Night of the Balloons, Golden Globe Awards, Teachers' Day (Venezuela), Tulpanens Dag, World Religion Day, Humanitarian Day, National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, and National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day.

Some of us are hat people; some of us are not. If you're not, step out of your comfort zone and don a chapeau today, National Hat Day.

Filzmoos, Austria, hosts Night of the Balloons. Somehow the hot air balloons glow in time to music. This might be a bucket-list-worthy event!

Tonight's Golden Globe Awards could spark controversy, as the unpredictable Ricky Gervais returns as host. (Can't resist adding a plug for one of the best television shows ever, created by Gervais - An Idiot Abroad.)

Venezuela observes Teachers' Day on January 15th.

Spring will eventually come - honest! Sweden celebrates Tulpanens Dag, otherwise known as Tulip Day, on January 15th.

World Religion Day, a non-denominational event observed on the third Sunday in January, promotes the notion that "So powerful is the light of unity, that it can illuminate the whole Earth."

Humanitarian Day, observed on the birth date of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is one of three Emancipation Days of Respect honoring the human rights activist.

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, one of many ice cream-related celebrations in the year, promises satisfaction to everyone who enjoys fruity ice cream.

Fulfill your new year's resolution to be healthier by celebrating National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day. Fruit juice is delicious!
