I was lucky enough to be in Hong Kong several years ago for Chinese New Year. It is such a fun and festive time. This festivity is a time for family reunion and is considered the most important part of the Chinese New Year celebration. People often visit relatives and friends, do some shopping, watch traditional Chinese New Year events, launch fireworks, and plan for the coming year. The celebration is sometimes accentuated with a religious ceremony given in honor of heaven, earth, the family’s ancestors and other gods. Kung Hei Fat Choi! (How you say Happy New Year).
National Western Stock Show. The National Western Stock show lets you get up close with the animals and be entertained with the rodeo through January 26. There are several ticket deals you can score discounted tickets from Groupon or Travelzoo. Plus, no matter what grounds admission is free with the purchase of a rodeo ticket. It is a full day’s entertainment at the price of a movie.

Ski for Free. 5th Graders can ski for free and 6th Graders ski for really cheap with the Passport from Colorado Ski Country. The passport allows Fifth-graders to try (and fall in love) with the sport. You get three times of skiing at the member resorts, a first timer’s lesson and rentals on the day of that lesson. As a Sixth Grader you get four times (and the lesson and rental if you didn’t take a first-timer one already). The deadline to apply is coming up on January 31!
Ski and Snowboard Month. Did you know that January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month? The ski areas take safety and the responsibility code (things like you need to be in control etc) very seriously. So seriously, that they have an entire month dedicated to teaching safety in a fun way (We’ve gathered all the fun info for you)!
