National Static Electricity Day
- Most of us have experienced touching a metal object and getting a sudden static or shock. Sometimes as soon as we take off our hat, our hair stands straight. This especially happens in winters. Therefore, the sudden shock and the hair standing out is a result of static electricity. Every day is a static electricity day!

Aviation in America Day (1793)
- A Frenchman, Jean-Pierre FranΓ§ois Blanchard, made the first manned free-balloon flight in America's history at Philadelphia, PA on January 9, 1793. The event was watched by President George Washington and many other high government officials. The hydrogen-filled balloon rose to a height of about 5,800 feet, traveled some 15 miles, and landed 46 minutes later in New Jersey. Reportedly Blanchard had one passenger on the flight — a little black dog.

Word Nerd Day/National Word Day
- In honor of Word Nerd Day, also known as National Word Day, start a Word of the Day plan for your family or friends. Thanks to Dictionary.com, here's our word for the day: byzantine - look it up!

National Apricot Day
- The day honors the apricot, a fruit that has been cultivated in China for more than 4,000 years. California is the biggest producer of apricots in the United States, producing 95% of the apricots sold annually.

Play God Day
- To mark this day, do something good which will make a difference. Anything fitting this definition is appropriate. You do not have to make it something miraculous. It can be something simple, like visiting someone who is ill or helping someone in need. Giving God thanks or prayer is also appropriate for this day.

Aviation in America Day/Balloon Ascension Day (1793)
- A large crowd gathered outside the walls of the Walnut Street Prison that fronted on what is now Independence Square in Philadelphia at dawn on January 9, 1793. The occasion was not a hanging but a balloon launching, which, if successful, would be the first aerial voyage in the history of the new United States of America and the New World by Jean Pierre Blanchard, noted French aeronaut.

Panama's Martyr Day
- A Panamanian holiday which commemorates the January 9, 1964 riots over sovereignty of the Panama Canal Zone. The riot started after a Panamanian flag was torn during a conflict between Panamanian students and Canal Zone Police officers, over the right of the Panamanian flag to be flown alongside the U.S. flag.
