Where did special interest holidays come from?

These celebrations come from all over the world. Simply put --you like it, we celebrate it! At National Today, we keep track of what people like doing and celebrating. There’s no judgement. No matter how crazy it sounds. So what if you like celebrating Awkward Moments Day (March 18). Or National Promposals Day (March 11). We think celebrating promposals is sweet and romantic! And we’re totally with you if you think your love for doing puzzles is worth an annual celebration. National Puzzles day (January 29) is definitely on our list as is National Stickers Day (January 13).

National Bobblehead Day, National Bubble Bath day, National Yo-Yo Day, International Joke Day, World Social Media Day, Still Need to Do Day … the list is crazier than it sounds. And it’s such fun! We urge you to look it up and get hooked. Get a bunch of friends together and start your celebration.
