Pop Art Day, Up Helly Aa, Data Privacy Day, more

January 28th, 2014, is Pop Art Day, Up Helly Aa, National Kazoo Day, Daisy Day, Gone-ta-Pott Day, Data Privacy Day, Thank a Plugin Developer Day, and National Blueberry Pancake Day.

No matter your opinion of  Andy Warhol's iconic soup cans, you have to admit they're eye-catching. Today is Pop Art Day, celebrated on the birth date of paint splatterer Jackson Pollock, highly influential to the Pop Art movement. Try making your own Pollock-inspired creation. Take it a step further and order a professional Warholian makeover of a favorite photograph!

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

Today is National Kazoo Day, although some celebrate the holiday on other days near the end of January, especially the fourth Thursday. In any event, let your kazoo-playing self go wild. Join the movement, if you feel so moved, to make the kazoo the official musical instrument of the USA.

Speaking of seeds for the garden, how about daisies? Brighten your home with daisies today in honor of Daisy Day.

The 28th of every month is Gone-ta-Pott Day. See their holiday website for more information.

Take a moment to consider your privacy and security online. Are you monitoring your children's activity? Have you changed your passwords and updated your antivirus software lately? Today is Data Privacy Day.

Thank a Plugin Developer Day is meant to honor those who develop plugins for WordPress, but countless others deserve praise as well, for tweaking the programs we love.

What's for breakfast? Enjoy something traditional and healthy on National Blueberry Pancake Day. Syrup and butter are optional!
