There are a hundreds of offbeat and unconventional holidays the majority of people have never heard of. To be honest, there’s probably a good reason most people haven’t heard of every random holiday out there — “Create a Vacuum Day,” on February 4th, I’m looking at you. BUT not every overlooked holiday is worth sweeping under the rug, as is the case for today, otherwise known as International Goof Off Day.
The world is serious enough and people should take advantage of any reason to let loose and lighten up. This unofficial holiday encourages people to take the day to relax, and basically remain as unproductive and useless as possible. Where do I sign up? So if you can’t take the day off to remain idle, then at least take a moment to lighten the mood at your school or office, because the world needs a healthy dose of silly every once in a while.
Have fun out there today!!
