Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites but no reference to the background of the holiday. Such as- why the month of January and why the 19th day??  That's the question...

This holiday is still referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a Weird Holiday /Spooky Holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So enjoy the day and have fun with it.

We found plenty of recognition from calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. Potions have been talked about for many years because potions are a part of our history and go back for generations. Most of our finding for this holiday show that it is meant to be fun and not in any way geared toward anything negative. Most of our research shows that this holiday is celebrated in a playful, joking way as in the idea of sending love potion greetings, and of the positive nature.
"Live everyday like a holiday!"

Definition of a Potion
Wikipedia encyclopedia tells us that "A potion (from latin potionis, meaning beverage, potion, poison) is a consumable medicine or poison, usually possessing magical properties."

"In mythology, a potion is a concoction used to heal, bewitch or poison people, made by a magician, sorcerer or witch. E.g. Love potions make a person fall in love with another (The love potion figures tragically into most versions of the tale of Tristan and Iseult, including Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde); sleeping potions cause a person to fall asleep (in folklore, this can range from normal sleep to a deathlike trance); and Elixirs are potions which heal/cure any wound/malady (as in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)."

"Creation of potions of different kinds was a common practice of alchemy."

"During the 19th Century it was common in certain countries to see wandering charlatans offering potions to heal every disease, ache, etc. These eventually gained reputations as quack medicines. In later years, these became replaced by/known as patent medicines."
