The holidays aren't over yet apparently, because it's National Straw Day Eve! Which means, well, not very much.
Jan. 3 is listed by the National Day Calendar, a private group that accepts submissions to mark specific days on the calendar as a celebration of businesses, organizations, events and products. National Straw Day is on Jan. 3 in recognition of the day Marvin C. Stone received a patent for the paper straw in 1886, although the National Day Calendar website notes that natural materials such as bamboo have been used to help humans drink for millennia.
National Straw Day, the website notes, is a day to "enjoy your favorite beverage while using a drinking straw," adding later that while there are a variety of other materials for straws that "many makers of plastic straws make reusable, collapsible straws too."
National Day Calendar has been promoting unofficial national days since 2013 with National Popcorn Day.
Jan. 3 doesn't belong exclusively to straws. It is also National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day. (And in addition to New Year's Day, Jan. 1 is also National Bloody Mary Day and National Hangover Day, which sounds appropriate)
And, just to keep things interesting, the group also notes that National Skip the Straw Day is the last Friday in February.
