If you’re tired of celebrating the same old holidays every year, maybe it’s time to try something a little…abnormal:
Fruitcake Toss Day – January 3: In case you have a fruitcake leftover from the holidays, this is the day you get to throw it. Maybe in the trash. Maybe at your neighbor.
Umbrella Day – February 10: Created in honor of the world’s most indispensable fashion accessory (because let’s get real: carrying an umbrella makes you more beautiful), you should celebrate this day by adding a new umbrella to your collection.
National Frozen Food Day – March 6: Go eat some hot pockets. Seriously. For you fact collectors out there: this holiday was created by Ronald Reagan, who had an affinity for the stuff.
Tax Day – April 17: Woo! Refund check. Unfortunately, you probably shouldn’t spend it on anything other than your student loan.
Star Wars Day – May 4: This is your day to dress up like Chewbacca. Just don’t shoot anybody with a laser.
National Yo-Yo Day – June 6: If you’ve got Yo-Yo skills, it’s time to go outside and show them off. If you don’t, it’s time to go outside and practice.
Worldwide Knit in Public Day – June 9: Channel the inner grandma in you, and knit something epic. Go outside. Gather your friends. And find your inner knitter.
National Workaholics Day – July 5: There’s only one way to properly celebrate this day: go to work early.
Sea Serpent Day – August 7: Seriously. Although we’re not sure how you’re supposed to celebrate this one. Maybe just avoid any potential serpent-dens. That means you probably shouldn’t be swimming in stagnant swamp water.
Talk Like a Pirate Day – September 19: Argh!
Take Your Teddy Bear to Work Day – October 11: Come on, you know you still have one. Just don’t do this.
