Puzzle Day, Curmudgeon Day, Corn Chip Day, more

January 29th, 2013, is National Puzzle Day, Up Helly Aa, National Carnation Day, Curmudgeon Day, Freethinkers Day, Thomas Paine Day, and National Corn Chip Day.

National Puzzle Day is today, so grab a sudoku, crossword, jigsaw, word search, or other puzzle of your choice.

Up Helly Aa  is Europe's largest fire festival, held each year in Lerwick, Scotland, on the last Tuesday in January.

Carnation Day is a wonderful opportunity to surprise someone you love. They'll be expecting flowers on February 14th. January 29th - not so much!

If no one gives you flowers today, feel free to be grumpy. After all, today is Curmudgeon Day.

Freethinkers Day, also known as Thomas Paine Day, celebrates the notion of reason over faith. Thomas Paine wrote Age of Reason and Rights of Man, two quintessential books about freedom, free thinking, and human rights.

Prepare your favorite salsa or guacamole, for today is National Corn Chip Day.
