January 4 -- the 11th Day of Christmas

Bobby Vinton a/k/a The Polish Prince
In addition to being the 11th Day of Christmas (no, it's not over yet), January 4 is also Trivia Day and, perhaps for that reason, most of the microminiholidayettes for today are pretty trivial indeed.

Our crack research staff is still missing from their New Year's 'investigation,' but there may be a link between Friday's observance of Pop Music Chart Day and the fact that 49 years ago, on January 4, 1964, Bobby Vinton, the Polish Prince, scored the last #1 hit prior to the start of the Beatles Era with "There I've Said It Again." (Usual Suspect gets the title of the song wrong... but nobody's perfect.)

Friday will also be National Spaghetti Day and National Hypnotism Day.
