24 Weird Holidays To Celebrate

24 Unusual Holidays You Should Start Celebrating TODAY

Themed parties everyday!


There are so many holidays that have been created over time. Many I have never heard of until I went looking for a reason to take a day off and celebrate something. I was not disappointed and now plan to start celebrating these days every year.

1. January 2 — Buffet Day

Throw out that New Year's resolution for just one more day and celebrate Buffet Day by going to your favorite buffet place.

2. January 27 — Chocolate Cake Day

Have you ever wanted an excuse to just by a chocolate cake and not feel guilty about it? Well, January 27th is your day to celebrate your love of chocolate cakes!

3. February 8 — Laugh and Get Rich Day

Alright, so by getting rich, it means enriching your life more. Take this day to go to a comedy club or plan a fun day with a group of friends. Just spend the day laughing and really enjoying your life.

4. February 24 — Tortilla Chip Day

I don't know about you, but chips and queso is absolute life. Now I can have a whole day to celebrate all the dips you can pair with tortilla chips and thank them for existing.

5. March 10 — Mario Day

Take this day, gather some friends and play some Mario games in a Mario themed party! I would recommend Mario Party or Mario Cart, but we all know how that ends. Maybe watch one of the Mario TV shows that came out in the 90s.

6. March 26 — Make Up Your Own Holiday Day

Have food you want to celebrate? Trying to find a way to talk your way of leaving the house? Have no fear, March 26th is here! It can be anything you want. The sky is the limit.

7. April 12 — Grilled Cheese Day

Okay, maybe I just love food, but who does not like a nice grilled cheese? Take this day to throw a grilled cheese party with friends and have a competition on who can make the best grilled cheese.

8. April 25 — DNA Day

This day is not as boring as you think! Of course, you can take time to learn more about the DNA and all of its processes. But you can also take one of those home DNA tests! Or even do a DNA test for your dog/cat!

9. May 4 — Free Comic Book Day

So, this is probably the more well known holiday on this list. However, your local comic book store is probably celebrating and having fun events throughout the day! What better way to support a local business, and pick up a good comic along the way.

10. May 29 — Put A Pillow In Your Fridge Day

Okay, hear me out. Apparently putting a pillow in the fridge on this day will bring you good luck. Worse come to worse, you at least don't have to worry about flipping your pillow for the cold side.

11. June 1 — Say Something Nice Day

Use this day to compliment people, and be a generally nice person. It not only makes you feel good, but it makes the other person feel good as well.

12. June 21 — Take Your Dog To Work Day*

I just want to pet all of the dogs, I don't have any real reason for this.

*Please be responsible and don't take them to work if they can cause health hazards.

13. July 3 — Compliment Your Mirror Day

Take the time to really love yourself. Remind yourself in the mirror that you are beautiful, smart, important, and you are doing your absolute best in life.

14. July 27 — Take Your Pants For A Walk Day

Take this day to go on a hike with a group of friends and just really enjoy being outside in your pants.

15. August 15 — Thrift Shop Day

Use this day to go to a thrift store and find an awesome bargain! Or maybe even take some old items of yours and take them to a thrift store.

16. August 25 — Kiss and Make Up Day

I think this holiday is really important. It is a day to let go of grudges and make up with people or tie up loose ends.

17. September 4 — Eat An Extra Dessert Day

Need I say more?

18. September 21 — National Clean Up Day

This is actually a nationally recognized holiday! Go out with a group of people and pick up trash at a local park or at the beach. We need to take better care of our Earth.

19. October 7 — Frappe Day

Now you have an excuse that you have to get a frappe!

20. October 28 — International Animation Day

On this day, celebrate the amazing world that animators have created! Get with a group of people and watch animated movies or support some animators online.

21. November 12 — Happy Hour Day*

Go out and take advantage of some happy hour drinks!

*Drink responsibly

22. November 24 — Celebrate Your Unique Talent

Throw your own America's Got Talent Party and see which one of your friends has the best talent!

23. December 7 — Letter Writing Day

Something about hand written letters is really nice. Take this day to write some of your loved ones a hand written letter.

24. December 27 — No Interruptions Day

The holidays are always rough. Take a day for yourself and regroup. Turn off your phones and everything that goes ding. Trying working on something that you have been meaning to work on for awhile.

There are so many made-up holidays that are worth celebrating! There is at least once per day. So if you are ever in a celebratory mood, make sure to look up a holiday you could celebrate.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
