Rubber Duckie Day, Night of the Balloons, more

January 13th, 2013, is Make Your Dreams Come True Day, Rubber Duckie Day, Night of the Balloons, Stephen Foster Memorial Day, Lohri, Plough Sunday, and National Peach Melba Day.

On Make Your Dreams Come True Day, take at least one step toward making your dreams come true. The word "make" is an action verb, so you know that wishful thinking just won't cut it.

Rubber Duckie Day commemorates the birthday of the rubber duckie beloved by Ernie on Sesame Street.

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!

Stephen Foster Memorial Day honors one of the United States' most famous songwriters. Foster wrote "Oh! Susanna" - it doesn't get much more American than that.

India celebrates Lohri, a time for people from all social classes to come together, relax, and take a break from the normal routine.

Plough Sunday, always the Sunday after Epiphany, is a celebration of farming and harvest.

Try a simple yet elegant dessert, featuring peaches, ice cream, and raspberry sauce, in honor of National Peach Melba Day.
