Celebration Of Life Month
Ever since ancient times, January has been observed as a month of new beginnings. Even the name of this month implies change. It’s named after the Roman god Janus, who is the god of transitions and new beginnings. It’s also traditionally been a month when people make new resolutions.
However, this month isn’t all about change and improving one’s life. It’s also about celebrating life, although that meaning has been lost over the past few decades. It should be a month about celebrating life, as embodied by it being Celebration of Life Month. So let’s all begin to celebrate it in that way.
The History of Celebration of Life Month
This holiday was originally created a few years ago by Food for Health International. This company is one that traditionally focused on whole foods, dry foods, and emergency foods for survival kits and home preparedness.
They created this holiday to remind everyone that food is necessary for everyone’s health, so everyone should take the time to eat high-quality food and enjoy their life. Not only enjoy their life during this month but every month moving forward.

Observing the Celebration of Life Month
During this month, we encourage everyone to take the time to celebrate their life. Yes, we know that this is traditionally a month when people are dieting, abstaining from alcohol, or starting a new exercise routine, but we don’t think that those “life improvements” are in opposition to celebrating life.
In fact, we think living a healthier lifestyle is probably one of the best ways to celebrate your own life and ensure that it continues as long as possible. This is also a good month to celebrate those friends and family members around you.
After all, our lives wouldn’t be the same without the love and support of those whom we love and who love us. As we celebrate these relationships, let’s also take a moment to use the hashtag #CelebrationOfLifeMonth on social media.
