National Polka Dot Day is celebrated every January 22nd of the year. And because Minnie Mouse is known for wearing a red dress with white polka dots, and often has a matching bow, the holiday has also been used to celebrate the character since 2016. In 2019, Disney launched Minnie Style so fans can celebrate National Polka Dot Day in their best Minnie Mouse attire.
