This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: September 9 – September 15

Obviously, the most important holiday this week is the anniversary of 9/11 on Wednesday. Take a minute out of your day and maybe quietly reflect or do something kind for someone else. If you do the former, let me know about it on Twitter – the more good deeds we put out into the world, the better.

Monday, September 9

National Teddy Bear Day

My favorite teddy bear as a kid was named Felicia and I have no idea where she went. It’s sort of said I never got to say bye.

Care Bears Share Your Care Day

You’re welcome.

National Wiener Schnitzel Day

Wiener Schnitzel is basically just breaded, fried veal? I’m still not eating it, but I honestly always thought it was a bit more exotic than that.

National Boss/Employee Exchange Day

You know, I like my job. I don’t think I’d like my boss’s job. I’m good.

National Swap Ideas Day

Here’s one – keep your stupid ideas to yourself, ok?

National TV Dinner Day

My personal version – Lean Cuisine.

National Ants on a Log Day

Can’t be just call it celery with peanut butter and raisins? Seriously, we’re adults here.

National Make Your Bed Day

Show of hands – who makes their bed every day?

National Hot Cross Bun Day

You’re welcome! Again!

Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance

Totally serious question: how is this not a national holiday? And I’m (seriously) not just saying that because I want another day off. Honor the dead. Honor the heroes.

National Video Games Day

It wasn’t until Twitter that I knew so many grown ass men play video games. Here’s your day, dudes!

National Chocolate Milkshake Day

Finally, something this week that I’ll eat.

National Day of Encouragement

Someone encourage me to get a chocolate milkshake, ok?

National Report Medicare Fraud Day

I mean, you can also encourage people to report Medicare fraud, but the milkshake is the primary focus, ok?

National School Picture Day

I really regret that I never got a school picture with that laser beam background…

Friday, September 13

National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day

I thought I wasn’t supposed to let kids play with the stove and knives? Make up your minds, people.

National Peanut Day

Are we still allowed to celebrate this or are too many people allergic?

National Blame Someone Else Day

I blame all those wimps who are allergic to peanuts.

Uncle Sam Day

That bastard that takes my taxes? No way.

National Programmers Day – 256th Day of the Year

Computer nerds, please (condescendingly) explain why this is the 256th day of the year.

National Hug Your Boss Day

I don’t want to be my boss and I certainly don’t want to hug my boss.

National Sober Day

On a Saturday? During college football season? But seriously, shout out to all of you living the sober life. Much respect.

National Cream Filled Donut Day

Eh, no.

National Eat a Hoagie Day

What is a hoagie, exactly?

National Live Creative Day

I am literally so not creative.

National Virginia Day

Fun fact: The first peanuts grown in the United States were grown in Virginia. Too bad no one is allowed to eat them anymore. #theme

Seriously happy that online learning has opened the door for so many more people to further their education.

Greenpeace Day

The only thing I know about Greenpeace is that’s where Sandra Bullock’s absent boyfriend worked in Two Week’s Notice. Probably should know more.

Wife Appreciation Day

Don’t have one. Don’t aspire to be one.
