Random Fun Fact

The Unicorn is the National animal of Scotland. While Scotland proudly boasts the Loch Ness Monster, one of the world's most famous fabled creatures, the country opted to make another mythical beast its national animal: the unicorn. Although this might seem like an odd choice, Visit Scotland explains that unicorns played an integral role in the country's history. Back in the 12th century, William I used the "proud beast" in the Scottish royal coat of arms.

FUN FACTS: January

January was named after the Roman god Janus. Janus is also the Roman word for door. The god Janus had two faces which allowed him to look forwards into the coming year and backwards into the past year. The original Roman calendar only had 10 months. January and February were not included, but were added later.

On average, it is the coldest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the second month of winter. In the Southern Hemisphere January is a summer month the equivalent of July.

Sometimes the Saxons called January the wolf month because hungry wolves would come into their towns searching for food this time of year.
