It happened in January

January is Janvier in French, Enero in Spanish, Gennaio in Italian, Januar in German and Jänner in the Austrian version of German.  Who knows, you might find it useful one day.

New Year’s Day is a Bank Holiday in both England and Scotland, but the Scots also take 2nd January as a Bank Holiday (instead of Easter Monday).  You may draw your own conclusions as to why they need the extra day.

The January Birthstone is a garnet.

Charles I was beheaded on 30th January, 1649.  He should not be confused with Charles the Bald, who was a different Charles I altogether and was not beheaded at all.  Louis XVI of France had his head chopped off on 21st January 1793.  He was a Bourbon.  I like the chocolate ones.

Christmas Day in the Old Calendar was on 7th January, so you could always start over if you really want to.
