At one point, I went through my calendar at work and filled it with stupid and lesser known holidays. Partially to amuse myself and partially to annoy others when I announce its Penguin Awarenes Day. Didn't know there was a Penguin Awareness Day? Yep. It was Wednesday, actually. And today is National Hugging Day, amongst other things.
Apparently there are so many of these silly days, they can't limit each day to just one thing. So today, in addition to being National Hugging Day, its also International Fetish Day (hello!!). This week is Healthy Weight Week, National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week, and January itself is about 30 different kinds of months including my favorites: National Mail Order Gardening Month and National Polka Music Month.
There are many sources online, but the one I found here is pretty comprehensive. I apologize in advance for the stupid animations.
You all are the only people I'm going to tell about National Hugging Day. I don't want anyone to have an excuse to touch me if I don't want them to. My 'hugging permitted' list is quite short.
So, anything interesting fall on your birthday or anniversary? My birthday is National Accountant's Day. (woo hoo!) Share your favorite weird holidays! Personally, I'm looking forward to September 14th - National Cream Filled Doughnut Day and National Procrastination Week in March. I always plan to celebrate it, but put it off. :)
