Add to each month with a fun or inspiring quotation. Take a look at what you can add for January.
“January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior
striding a shadowy steed of snow.”
– Edgar Fawcett
Tapped at my door today.
And said, “Put on your winter wraps,
And come outdoors to play.”
Is always full of fun;
Until the set of sun.
Will stay a month with me
And we will have such jolly times –
Just come along and see.”
– Winifred C.
“January is named after the Roman god Janus, who was always shown as having two heads. He looked back to the last year and forward to the new one. The Roman New Year festival was called the Calends, and people decorated their homes and gave each other gifts.”
– New Year’s Day
“January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.”
– Sara Coleridge, Pretty Lessons in Verse
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a
riendly hand and for a talk
beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell
