Soup Swap Day, Fancy Rat and Mouse Day, more

January 21st, 2012, is National Soup Swap Day, National Hugging Day, National Squirrel Appreciation Day, Fancy Rat and Mouse Day, Polar Bear Jumpoff and Ugly Fish Toss, Compass Cup, National Granola Bar Day, and New England Clam Chowder Day.

National Soup Swap Day is a fab idea for soup-lovers! Think cookie swap, but with hot, delicious soup. Everyone brings a huge pot of soup, then everyone goes home with an array of soup samples. Count me in!

National Hugging Day is an international event, according to their website, since the holiday name is translated into many languages. Everybody needs a hug sometimes. Just be sure your hug is welcome. Hug your loved ones.

Sorry, but this next holiday is one I refuse to celebrate. Squirrels once invaded our attic, disturbing our wiring and our sleep, so National Squirrel Appreciation Day will come and go without my participation.

If squirrels aren't your thing, how about Fancy Rat and Mouse Day? Again, I'll sit this one out.

Seward, Alaska, hosts the Polar Bear Jumpoff and Ugly Fish Toss today. Sounds like a great time! After tossing the ugly fish, I'll have some fresh Alaskan salmon for dinner.

Don't miss Australia's only cow race - the Compass Cup - in Mount Compass, Australia. In addition to the race, events include a Dung Fling, Milk Loading Race, Rubberboot Marathon, and more.

National Granola Bar Day celebrates a convenient, sometimes healthy, breakfast or snack option.

In conjunction with (or instead of) National Soup Swap Day, celebrate New England Clam Chowder Day. Delicious!
