Let’s face it, some celebrations are, well, puzzling. We don’t get them, you don’t get them, so what’s the point in them (besides a day off work, of course)? In this list, we’re going to take a look at 18 traditional holidays that no one really sees the point of anymore.
Despite the name, no actual boxing is involved. Confused shoppers everywhere agree: let’s make this holiday’s purpose a whole lot clearer, or just accept that it should be called “Leftover Day.”
Whoever thought taxes deserved their own special day? Here we are, drowning in receipts and scrambling for deductions. Next year, how about a “taxes magically did themselves” day?
Ok, this is sweet and all, but our wallets think Mother’s and Father’s Day cover it. For those of us who’s kids haven’t moved out yet, How does “Parents Nap While Kids Do Chores Day” sound?
Singles Awareness Day
Because, apparently, Valentine’s Day wasn’t reminder enough. We’re aware as it already, guys! How about we just have a “Mind Your Own Business Day”?
“Let’s celebrate questionable navigation skills and accidental discoveries!” said no one ever. Seriously, can’t we get a more relevant day off, and maybe something a bit less problematic too?
Predicting weather with a rodent? Classic… but not exactly up to 2023 standards. Maybe we can just leave this one with Bill Murray.
Don’t get it twisted; trees are great. But honestly, how many of us actually plant a tree? You know what might be better, though? “Watch Bob Ross Paint Trees Day.”. Now that’s a celebration to be proud of.
An extra day in February? Of all the months, we could have done this one, and we decided to have the most miserable one of them all. If we’re adding days to the calendar, can it be during the summer?
Valentine’s Day’s less-popular cousin. It’s as if one day of forced romance wasn’t enough. Great, just what we needed: more chocolates and guilt!
Flags! Flags Everywhere! But does anyone truly remember why? How about a “National Learn to Fold a Flag Properly Day”? We certainly know a few people who might need that lesson.
April Fools’ Day
If trust issues were a day, there would no better match than April Fools’. Maybe it’s time to swap pranks for compliments? At least maybe less rickrolls, please?
While appreciation is vital, why so specific? Why not just have a day to celebrate all walks of life? Titles are so last century.
Whoever decided to make a holiday for decency instead of people needs to be fired. Instead of the shopping madness, perhaps a “Stay at Home and Nap Day” would be more civilized?
Talk Like a Pirate Day
Yarr, matey! As if we don’t already all get enough impression grief from our friends for the rest of the year. Can we have a “Talk Like a Normal Person” day instead?
Guy Fawkes Night
Our furry friends would be very grateful to see the back of this holiday. Remember, remember… actually, what are we remembering? Might as well rename it “Random Fireworks Night.”
The day of pure confusion. If we cancel it, does it mean we’re celebrating it? Is this holiday unmovable, or did we never have it at all… argh! Too confusing!
St. Swithin’s Day
Rain predictions based on folklore is about as convincing as ones based on rodents. “Appreciate Your Meteorologist Day” seems more apt for those of us living in this century.
Old Rock Day
Yes, it’s real. No, we don’t get it either. Do we gift each other fossils or just random pebbles? Maybe a “Pet Your Pet Rock Day” would at least be a bit funny?
