      What Is Today


      The second Monday of January each year recognizes National Clean Off Your Desk Day.
      This day is an opportunity to begin your new year with a clean and organized workspace. Whether your desk is in a private or shared office, cubicle, home or a make-shift desk on the counter, having your workspace uncluttered, organized, refreshed and clean will help you work more efficiently and give you a sense of serenity.


      National Dress Up Your Pet Day is observed each year on January 14. Pets do become part of one’s family. This day was created to make it a special day for them, to celebrate them and also to support the pet fashion community.

      Please remember to keep your pets safe and comfortable in the pet clothing and costumes that you choose.

      Tips for dressing up your pet:

      • If your pet just doesn’t like dressing up, let them sit this holiday out.
      • Be sure it fits. Restricting movement or ability to breathe can cause injury or illness.
      • Many pets like to chew. Avoid loose or dangling pieces which can cause choking hazards.


      Ratification Day on January 14 annually recognizes the act the officially ended the American Revolution. This day is in commemoration of the ratification of the Treaty of Paris on January 14, 1784, at the Maryland State House in Annapolis,

      Maryland by the Confederation Congress and established the United States as a sovereign entity.

      • A proclamation was issued by the Confederation Congress on April 11, 1783, “Declaring the cessation of arms” against Great Britain.
      • Congress approved the preliminary articles of peace on April 15, 1783.
      • The Treaty of Paris was ratified on January 14, 1784.

      The following is an excerpt from the proclamation of ratification:

      “By the United States in Congress assembled, a proclamation: Whereas definitive articles of peace and friendship, between the United States of America and His Britannic
      Majesty, were concluded and signed at Paris, on the 3rd day of September 1783 … we have thought proper by these presents, to notify the premises to all the good citizens of
      these United States …

      Given under the seal of the United States, witness His Excellency Thomas Mifflin, our president, at Annapolis, this fourteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord one
      thousand seven hundred and eighty-four … ”

      ~Definitive Articles of the Peace of Paris – Signed by representatives of Britain and The United States on September 3, 1783.

      Ratification Day recognizes the anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Paris. A ceremony takes place at Annapolis, Maryland in the State House where the treaty was signed. The Old Senate Chamber has been renovated and preserved just as it was at the signing. Every January 14, a flag in the design that was displayed at the time of the signing of the Treaty of Paris flies over the State House; twelve stars forming a circle with one star in the center.


      Pastrami lovers across the country look forward to their favorite sandwich on January 14 as they recognize National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day.
      A very popular delicatessen meat, pastrami is usually made from beef however sometimes is made from pork, mutton or turkey. The pastrami was originally created as a way to preserve meat before modern refrigeration. To make pastrami the raw meat is placed in brine, then partially dried, seasoned with various herbs and spices, smoked and steamed.
      A wave of Romanian Jewish immigration introduced pastrami (pronounced pastróme), a Romanian specialty, in the second half of the 19th century. Early English references had used the spelling “pastrama” before the modified “pastrami” spelling was used.
      New York kosher butcher, Sussman Volk is generally credited with producing the first pastrami sandwich in 1887, claiming to have gotten the recipe from a Romanian friend in exchange for storage of his luggage. Due to the popularity of his sandwich, Volk converted his butcher shop into a restaurant to sell pastrami sandwiches.

      • Pastrami is typically sliced and served hot on rye bread, a classic New York deli sandwich (pastrami on rye), sometimes served with coleslaw and Russian dressing.
      • Pastrami and coleslaw are combined in a Rachel sandwich ( a variation of the Reuben sandwich using corned beef and sauerkraut)
      • In Los Angeles – The classic pastrami sandwich is served with hot pastrami right out of the steamer, sliced very thin and wet from the brine then layered on double-baked Jewish-style rye bread. It is traditionally accompanied by yellow mustard and pickles.
      • In Salt Lake City – In the early 1960′s, Greek immigrants introduced a hamburger topped with pastrami and a special sauce. This pastrami burger remains a staple of local burger chains in Utah.
