January Joys

January continues, and it is always interesting!

January 25th is the date of this year's Martin Luther King Day... a man who contributed so much to our nation.

On a different continent, Robert Burns is celebrated on January 25th, the poet and author's birthday with Burns Night suppers.

And an excuse to celebrate all things plaid or tartan... including this cute Scotty dog tea cozy...

Tartan items have always been collected, and were all the rage in the Victorian era, as Queen Victorian and Prince Albert loved them...

And we do love plaids and tartans even today!
The next photo is from Victoria magazine

January 25th is also the Lunar New Year in Asian areas...

And 2020 is the year of the Rat. I tried to find something with a rat, and the closest I could find was a teacup with one of the mice from Brambly Hedge from Jill Barklem!

So, whatever you are celebrating this week, enjoy it with a cup of tea! It's still Hot Tea Month!
