US Holiday On January 2 2023?
The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during Monday, 2023-01-02:
National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day: [pro] "Through multiple wars, thousands of American service members have faced unimaginable cruelty and unspeakable treatment at the hands of foreign captors. Many sacrificed their own well-being to protect their fellow prisoners, the war effort, and our country. The families suffered as well, unsure of their loved ones' fates, just as the captured warriors were unsure of what the next day would bring. Not all of these courageous men and women, who persevered bravely and sometimes alone, are prominently noted in our history books. Yet, their stories are etched in our national conscience, and their courage is enshrined in the tradition of honor and bravery that is the mark of our Armed Forces."
Groundhog Day: [other] Groundhog Day is a folk method used by farmers, especially the United States and Canada, to predict the end of winter, based on the behavior of the animal when it leaves hibernation on February 2.
Ohio Braille Literacy Week: [oh-sp] The Ohio Brille Literacy Week is a week long commemoration in honor of Louis Braille, the inventor of the Braille system used, in modified form, for printing, writing, and musical notation for the blind, and who was born on January 4, 1809, and became blind from an accident at the age of three. This observance has been in effect since 1992-10-28.

Rose Parade - 134 Edition: [other] [substitute] The Rose Parade is an American New Year celebration that takes place on January 1st each year, unless it falls on a Sunday where it is passed to January 2nd. This parade is held in Pasadena, California, since 1890. It is the most popular parade in the United States in which around 40 motorized floats, 20 musical bands and 15 groups of horse riders participate. The president of the organising association chooses a theme each year for the parade, which inspires the people to decorate their floats. The event is broadcast on local, national and international television, thus generating an audience of hundreds of thousands. At the end of the parade, a college football game, called the Rose Bowl, is played.
