March 18th Awkward Moments Day

We all have them so why not celebrate them!?! Those awkward moments when you don;t exactly know why something happened but it did, it’s embarrassing and, oh well.. it happens! Those times when we don;t know exactly what to say, when to say something… if anything… and who to say it to. Instead of hiding away, you might as well enjoy them (As best you can) laugh at yourself and realize that everyone makes mistakes so you might as well make the best of them.

How to celebrate – Write down your awkward moments so you remember them. Watch for others to make their awkward moments. Live and let live.


January 10th Peculiar People Day

So how many people do you know that you would consider peculiar? Do you consider yourself peculiar? Exactly what is peculiar? These are all question we should ask before we pass our own judgement against others that we consider odd or different. Maybe they consider us odd or different! Do we consider ourselves odd or peculiar? If you are different.. take pride in what makes you different than someone else, provided that isn’t something that will harm others. There’s nothing bad about marching to a different drummer so long as that drummer isn’t taking you somewhere you really don’t want to go.

How to celebrate – Take pride in being peculiar. Think of all the things you do differently than others. Find something good in everyone.

October 9 Curious Events Day

We all have different things we just can’t put our thumb on that we become curious about. Sometimes those curious events border on neurotic. And since they are events they are things that have come about on particular dates, or concerning particular surroundings. And whether they are curious to everyone or just a few really doesn’t matter, so long as they are curious to you. Which is, in a way, a curious event as well.

How to celebrate – Look into things that are interesting and a bit confusing to you. Remember, curiosity killed the cat. Nearly all creatures on earth are curious at one time or another.

July 15th Be A Dork Day

Do we know what a Dork actually is? I think we all probably have our own definition of what it takes to be one. Generally speaking they are awkward, clumsy, goofy, ridiculous, silly, out of touch, odd, a social misfit or some combination of all of those things at once. Well, that’s according to I suppose to know what a Dork is, one must be one and, at times, aren’t we all a dork!?!

How to celebrate – Be a Dork! Make up your own definition of what a dork is. Make a list of all the dorks you know.

May 11th Twilight Zone Day

The Twilight Zone has been one of the most widely known mystery shows of all time. It began in 1959 with Rod Serling as host and ran until 1964. Those 5 years though seem to have created a following that lasts even well into the 2020’s now. It is not without its problems though as the movie in 1983 met with disaster and death while filming. Today is the day we remember the Zone, but apparently no one claims to have created the day. Huh, maybe we are all in the Twilight Zone and just don’t know it.

How to celebrate – Watch reruns of “The Twilight Zone”. Take a look at all the stars that were featured in the “Twilight Zone”. Read the “Twilight Zone” books.

March 18th Awkward Moments Day

Well, we’ve all had them… those moments we wish we could forget but that keep creeping back into our lives. Oddly today is supposed to be the day that we let those moments pass and forget them, but to celebrate today you have to remember them to let them go! Moments like breaking wind in an elevator or thinking a perfect strange is some you recognize from long ago. How about those moments you go on a date and can no longer think of anything to talk to this stranger about! Maybe it was showing up as a party you though was a costume party but turned out not to be.

How to celebrate – Remember those awkward moments today so that you can forget them. Write down a list of your awkward moments so you can remember to forget them. Stay home today so you don’t add to your list of awkward moments.

January 10th Peculiar People Day

We all know at least one Peculiar person don’t we? Maybe we are that one peculiar person someone else knows! There is normally nothing wrong with a peculiar person, or at least we hope there isn’t. They are just odd for some reason or the other. It may be the way they speak or the things they do, they may collect peculiar things or watch odd movies but it’s still okay, well most of the time anyway. Live and let live I say… but don’t quote me because someone wiser said that before me! Enjoy the people around you even with their faults, after-all… you may be odd in their eyes too!

How to celebrate – Figure out who that peculiar person is that you know. List what others might find peculiar about you! Enjoy people for who they are.

November 20th Absurdity Day

There seem to be a lot of strange days in November and today is no exception, it’s Absurdity Day. Of course, something considered absurd really does fall to the individual and what they consider absurd. It may seem quite normal to someone else. However, should you choose to observe today as a holiday you may want to list those things you consider to be odd enough to make your absurd list, which if you think about it, is sort of something absurd to do in itself.

How to celebrate – Determine what you consider to be absurd. Form a club to consider what is absurd and what isn’t. Make a list of absurdities.

October 17th Wear Something Gaudy Day

If you like to stand out in a crowd, wear something gaudy. As an example, in the 1970’s “Three’s Company” television show Richard Kline, played by Larry Davis, always wore very bright clothing that didn’t always match. He actually declare a gaudy clothing day to fit his character. There is nothing wrong with standing out in a crowd and showing your bad taste is your choice! Besides, who is it that makes up the rules as to what is gaudy and what isn’t? It certainly isn’t me!

How to celebrate – Wear something gaudy today. Watch a re-run of “Three’s Company”. See how many outfits you can make up that don’t match at all out of your wardrobe.

October 9th Curious Events Day

Have you ever had an event occur on a day and wondered why that day or why that event? Well today is your day to ponder that a little more. It’s all about those current events going on around you that are celebrated for seemingly no reason at all. Now these are days that are not readily explained to everyone, like Christmas or Halloween. These are days and events that seem to come up out of nowhere and now exist for no reason at all. Like all people that want to be recognized as normal but throw events taking pride in the fact that they aren’t normal. Naturally we have no clue what normal actually is but even then, throwing a special event to show you aren’t “normal” while trying to blend into society is just a bit… curious.

How to celebrate – Look for Curious Events. Make a list of days you’d like to celebrate that aren’t celebrated. Just accept everything, you are going to have to sooner or later.
