National Compliment Day

National Compliment Day

January 24th is National Compliment Day. A simple holiday created in 1998 to increase the amount of kindness in the world by encouraging everyone to say compliments to the people in their lives. Compliments increase feeling of self-worth and exhibit a positive feedback cycle where the person complimented thus is more likely to compliment someone else later. You can actually celebrate this holiday every day!

Single Awareness Day

Single Awareness Day

To counteract Valentine's Day, every February 15th is single's awareness day. Couples and families get all the holidays but this one is just for single folk. So buy yourself a box of chocolates and order in from your favorite restaurant, it's all about you tonight.

National Cat Day

National Cat Day

Created in 2005 by animal welfare advocates, October 29th is National Cat Day. The day is meant to raise awareness for the amount of cats in shelters who need adopting but it's a great excuse to pamper your cat. Be it catnip or finally allowing your pet to viciously attack your ear-bud headphones, let your cat do what they want on this National Cat Day.

National Drink Beer Day

National Drink Beer Day

Every September 28th is National Drink Beer Day. This easy to explain holiday simply encourages the consumption of beer throughout the day. Conveniently, National Drink Coffee day starts the following morning.

International Nude Day

International Nude Day

July 14th is International Nude Day. Sadly, this holiday is still oppressed in many parts of the world, with celebrators often charged with indecent exposure. It was started in New Zealand by some rugby players who encouraged people to streak past the Prime Ministers house and somehow became engrained in the society.

Napping Day

Napping Day

Every March 12th is Napping Day. You don't even need to get out of bed to celebrate this holiday, in fact, you are encouraged not to!
