National Brandy Alexander Day (January 31) U.S. Observance
"Brandy Alexander is a sweet, brandy-based cocktail that became popular during the early 20th century. It was supposedly created at the wedding between Princess Mary and Lord Lascelles in London in 1922.  The Brandy Alexander is based on an earlier, gin-based cocktail called simply an "Alexander".  It is sometimes confused with a drink called a "Panama," which is made with light crème de cacao, instead of the dark crème de cacao used for the Brandy Alexander."

Enjoy this holiday with a glass of Brandy Alexander. Invite your friends and toast to the season.

  • See National Brandy Alexander Day for information and recipe too!

National Backwards Day! (January 31) U.S. Observance / Weird Holidays
This is one holiday that all the kids love. All you have to do is do everything backwards. Put your clothes on backwards and wear them that way all day long. Make a pin to wear that says "Today is Backwards Day." Don't forget to pin it on backwards. It drives everyone crazy trying to figure out what it says. Try eating dessert first then your main meal. Or better yet, have a cheeseburger for breakfast and scrambled eggs for supper. We have some great examples for scrambled egg dishes.

Play a game of talk back-words: Write a sentence down on a piece of paper and read it backwards to the person to your left. Give them 60seconds to give the sentence back to you front-words.
