Today is the Day!
Seeing that for some reason it's been a real boost of appreciation of official "DAYS" on Facebook lately, often those that are quite incignificant, like yesterday's day: Waffle Day, I found that I was highly irritated by the constant preassure of consuming. I have been for some while, especially after visiting a lot of different blogs and YouTube channels, mostly by girls. So this was sort of the top of the iceberg for me, and I was curious about the reality of these "days" and how some of them can be so important and political like "Woman's Equality Day" while all of a sudden you have the international "What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day" for example. Somehow, to me, it makes the days that actually makes us think less important and more like a joke. Of course I understand that these days are created by businesses and are quite valuable to them, but I still have to wonder about some of the day's and the meaning of them. Here are some of the weirdest days I could find: JANUARY: Polar Bear Swim Day Copyright Law Day Drinking Straw Day I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day Bubble Bath Day Earth's Rotation Day Step In A Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day Rubber Duckie Day Nothing Day Tin Can Day Answer Your Cat's Questions Day Measure Your Feet Day Belly Laugh Day Beer Can Appreciation Day Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day FEBRUARY: Working Naked Day Lame Duck Day Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbour Day Laugh and Get Rich Day Toothache Day Extraterrestrial Culture Day My Way Day Introduce a Girl To Engineering Day Sword Swallowers Day Curling is Cool Day MARCH: Old Stuff Day What If Cats and Digs Had Opposable Thumbs Day Absinthe Day Frozen Food Day Middle Name Pride Day Get Over It Day Check Your Batteries Day False Teeth Day Panic Day Day of Awesomeness Fill Your Staplers Day Earmuffs Day Open An Umbrella Indoors Day Snowman Burning Day Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day Something On A Stick Day So yeah...I will save all the EXCITING new days for the beginning of every new month for you. Just to celebrate. Something.
