January

January is named after Janus, the god of the doorway; the name has its beginnings in Roman mythology, coming from the Latin word for door (ianua) since January is the door to the year.

The Saxon word for January was Wulfmonath: the month when starving wolves were bold enough to enter villages.

Key Holidays in January are New Year's Day, Republic Day in India, Australia day and Martin Luther King Day.
