Do you want to continue living a calm and boring life free of all sorts of fun activities? If the answer is no, Dare Day is the perfect time for you to break out of your shell and shock everyone around you. Dare to be different and enjoy it while it lasts!
History of Dare Day
While the exact history of Dare Day is unclear, the origins of games related to dares have existed for centuries. This is because it is human nature to challenge each other to perform difficult tasks that we may fail to perform. The fearlessness to go ahead with a certain command regardless of the consequences is the main factor that differentiates someone who is daring from someone who prefers to play it safe.
Dare Day was created keeping this very objective in mind — to give people an opportunity to test their courage. Dedicated to daring individuals across the U.S., June 1 is the time of the year where people challenge each other and try to accomplish different tasks with boldness.
The day, however, is not meant to bully anyone or force people into performing acts they find agonizing. Instead, the event was formed so friends and family across the country can have a good time and partake in some daring and fun activities. A lot of people also celebrate the day with the globally famous party game called ‘Truth or Dare’ in which each player is given an option to speak the truth or opt for a dare. This game has existed for centuries and aims to lighten up a party with funny yet challenging dares. The truth questions, too, are not easy to answer and may require a great deal of courage.
