  • $\begingroup$ l was inspired by a question l previously asked. That question contains a calendar rebus l found on Bing. $\endgroup$ – Scratch---Cat Apr 29 '20 at 3:02

    $\begingroup$ What's up with the title using I instead of l? Is that necessary for the puzzle? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 29 '20 at 3:46
  • $\begingroup$ This puzzle inspired a copycat puzzle, @Scratch---Cat , thank you for leading the way! $\endgroup$ – humn May 4 '20 at 6:47

I believe the answers may be:

1. MAYDAY (the 'SOS' expression and also traditionally the name given to the 1st of May) [Double definition];

2. Wake Me Up When September Ends (a song by Greenday) [All days except the last are replaced by 'Z's to indicate sleep];

3. Green Christmas (the term given to a Christmas day without snow on the ground) [Christmas Day (25 December) is coloured green];

4. A cold day in July (an expression equivalent to "When Hell freezes over...") [The temperature '1°C' appears on the first day of July];

5. Pie hole (a slang term for the mouth) [A hole is left on 14 March, otherwise known as Pi Day].
