7: Old Rock Day. Perhaps today you could start (or add to) a rock collection.
20: Inauguration Day. President Barack Obama will be sworn in to a second term as president. Because the 20th falls on a Sunday, the public ceremony will take place on Jan. 21 on the steps of the Capitol.
23: Measure Your Feet Day. Are both your feet the same size? Bet you never thought to find out.
