This really should read, “It’s My Pity Party Day” and we all have them. We like to let people know we are suffering and that they should feel sorry for us, for some unknown reason it really does make us feel better. It made Leslie Gore feel a whole lot better when it became a #1 hit in 1963! She was only 16 at the time and the most natural age for anyone to have a pity party! Why October 11th? Well no one seems to know to be honest. The fact that today exists at all is because people want others to join them at their party and be just as miserable as they are.
How to celebrate – Have a party! Get a copy of Leslie Gore’s 1963 hit! Write down all the reasons people should feel sorry for you, draw one out of a hat and you have your reason for the party!
