Welcome back to life after the holidays! It has been a crazy couple of weeks, hasn’t it?
Anyway, there are some exciting things coming up this week…from music to movies to quirky holidays you’re going to love.

In music we have some exciting albums coming out today—Dropkick Murphys release their new album Signed & Sealed In Blood, and Broadcast releases the first album since the death of their incredibly talented singer Trish Keenan. The album Berberian Sound Studio (the soundtrack for the movie of the same name) will feature some vocals from the late singer.

There are also a few highly anticipated flicks coming out this Friday—Zero Dark Thirty starring Jessica Chastain will finally be released to the nation (a handful of cinemas already have it), A Haunted House starring Marlon Wayans hits theaters, as does the star-studded period crime film Gangster Squad.

And in case you just didn’t get enough celebrating done over the holidays we do have some random and strange holidays coming up for you this week. Tomorrow is Bubble Bath Day, which is, of course, super important and should be observed by all! Thursday is House Plant Appreciation Day (which means it’s time I remember to water them), and Sunday is Make Your Dream Come True Day. Because isn’t that just a nice way to end the week?

Happy January from Cheezburger!
