Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

January 17 ~ Hot Buttered Rum Day

You know what you have to do today...Buy a bottle of Rum, make yourself a "hot buttered rum" and relax...  Don't you just love these holidays?

The basic recipe can be found at Cocktail Times... 

Or find a recipe in one of these...

Don't feel like making your own... Try a mix or ready made...

If you like the idea of relaxing with that warm comforting smell, but don't really care to drink you can always light a candle and be instantly relaxed with just the aroma...  Found these hand made votives by WoodcraftsandCandles on Etsy, one of my favorite sites..

That's all I've got for you today... Cheers!!!  
"Why is the rum gone?"
