january trivia questions and answers

January is a very unlikeable month. It’s cold, the days are shorter, and because it comes around straight after Christmas and the New Year, it often means stupid mottos like “New Year, New You” and Dry January. Why anyone would want to give up booze on one of the hardest months of the year is beyond us!

However, for most of us January represents new beginnings and fresh starts. With the right attitude, you really get to new year off to a great start.

January itself is as old as time. Or is it? There is so much January trivia and history, that this ultimate January quiz will really surprise you!
