There’s a holiday for that, and that’s no bologna

Today I found out that it was national bologna day, which seems a bit ridiculous to me; that we have a day honoring bologna, not that I just found out about it. It got me thinking about things that I would like to see have there own day of celebration; but then when I started researching, I found a bunch of crazy stuff that already does. Here are some of my favorites in no particular order.

October 7 is “Bald and Free Day”


This is the write up I found for this day.


“Bald and Free Day honors those of us with a beautiful, shiny top. You don”t” have to be bald to celebrate this day. But, it helps. People who are married to, or related to a bald headed person can celebrate with the honoree.”


As a proud bald man, I am disappointed this day came and went without me knowing about it; but you can be sure that I”ll be celebrating next year.


November 2 is “Look for Circles Day”


“Look For Circles Day is today. Go forth, in search of circles. We suspect you will find them everywhere. Looking for circles, is a lot like swimming in a round pool. You go round and round. There”s a lots of splashing. But, you don”t get anywhere.”


Something tells me that whoever came up with this day and also this explanation were not in their right mind. It just don”t make no sense.



December 5 is “Bathtub Party Day.”

I have to be honest, I was a little scared to click on the description, but it turned out to be okay.


“Bathtub Party Day is today. Draw yourself a tub full of warm water. Add a few bath oil beads, and Voila! You”re ready to hop in and “soak it” in the bathtub. Ahh, how soothing and relaxing!”



January 17 is “Ditch Your New Years Resolution Day.”


“If there”s a day to celebrate New Years and to make resolutions for the upcoming year, then there should be a day to ditch those resolutions. That”s the reason for today.”


God bless the person who did that write up for keeping up with them for so long. I celebrate this holiday January 1.



February 7 is “Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbour Day.”


“Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day is the perfect opportunity to greet your neighbor with a big wave. But, to show your respect and appreciation on this very important day, you must wave with all of your fingers”


As opposed to every other day when you just wave one finger at the one who stole your lawn mower and chainsaw.

March 14 is ” National Pi Day.”


“National Pi Day celebrates Pi, a mathematical concept and a number that never ends….at least no one has found the end yet. Often, we round it off to 3.14. If you are a mathematician, this is your day. For National Pi Day is a celebration mathematics. And, more specifically…. it celebrates “Pi”.”


Add an “e” to the end, make it peach, and get back to me.


April 7 is “No Housework Day;” or as I like to call it, everyday.


“No Housework Day is your chance to do anything, except housework. Better still, have someone else do the chores for a day. Housework is a daily, seemingly endless and repetitive groups of tasks. It often goes unrecognized and worst of all….. taken for granted. But, watch out! If the dishes aren”t done, or there”s no clean towels, somebody takes note.”



May 9 is “Lost Sock Memorial Day.”


“On Lost Sock Memorial Day, we suggest you spend a little time (as little as possible) searching for those missing socks. After a (very) brief search, and in good “Memorial” spirit, spend a minute reflecting upon how warm and comforting the missing socks were on your stinky toes. Then, by all means, get on with your life. Today is also a good opportunity to toss out all of your unmatched socks.”


I have a whole drawer dedicated to these brave socks that go on without their matches.

And finally a day no one needs to see. July 14 is “National Nude Day.”


“National Nude Day is a way to keep cool on a hot , sticky summer day. So, take it off……take it all off.”




So there you have it a list of real observed “holidays.” Is there something not listed you”d like to see celebrated? Will you look at Pi differently knowing it has its own day?

A special thanks to for these bizarre holidays

  1. I like the Bald and Free Day for obvious reasons. Missed my birthday by two days. Now that would have been a real treat.

  2. Well, I guess since we have a ‘talk like a pirate’ day, these make sense. Someone has way too much time on their hands. And ‘Looking for circles’ day? I suspect drugs, conspiracy theorists, or geometry buffs for that one. I am noticing lots of circles in this room though. 🙂
