Early Bird Day is observed on July 1 and it is celebrated annually. This crazy day is all about being the first one to grab the best out of what is on sale. People go to shops, restaurants, and supermarkets very early in the morning to try to grab the best product, service, dish, and whatever else they can get their hands on. Some shops and restaurants offer special products or dishes on this day but only if you go there in the morning. So you must be a morning person if you want to make the most of it.
History of Early Bird Day
If you are wondering what it means when a person is an early bird, let us tell you. The first thing that you have to understand is the meaning of these phrases: “the early bird gets the worm,” and “the early bird catches the worm.” The truth is that these phrases have been used frequently by English people since 1605. The meaning of these phrases is that the one who arrives first has the best chance for success. They also mean that someone will have an advantage if they do something immediately.
An early bird, or better to say an early person, in this case, will be the one that arrives first at a store when there is a limited amount of an item on sale, the first to arrive at a restaurant when it opens, and the first to arrive at a popular fishing spot in the morning. These people will have the best chance at success, just like the first robin hopping on the morning dew looking for worms.
Although Early Bird Day is not as well known, this day could be a great opportunity to grab what you have been waiting for.
