This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: September 23rd – September 29th

I don’t know what the hell is this, but I love dogs, so I’m in.

National Great American Pot Pie Day

Are there different nationalities of pot pie?

National Teal Talk Day

Ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer deaths in women and over 14,000 women died of it in 2018. Talk about it.

Is this that thing when you can’t stop moving your legs when you are trying to sleep? It sounds horrid.

Happy Fall, y’all! You can officially start eating pumpkin spice everything without being mocked.

National Cherries Jubilee Day

No, thank you.

National Punctuation Day

Let’s debate the Oxford comma, shall we?

Schwenkfelder Thanksgiving

“The Schwenkfelders are the descendants of a small Protestant sect that sprang up in Germany around the time of the Reformation. They were followers of Caspar Schwenkfeld, a theologian. He and his followers separated from Protestant circles and formed the brotherhoods that still survive as the Schwenkfelder Church. Most Schwenkfelders now live in Pennsylvania Dutch country.” Ok then.

National Voter Registration Day

Register. It’s fucking important.

Hard pass on anaphylaxis, but the rest of you enjoy!

National Compliance Officer Day

Seriously, compliance officers suck but they do have a job to do so don’t be an ass.

National Johnny Appleseed Day

“John Chapman (September 26, 1774 – March 18, 1845), better known as Johnny Appleseed, was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ontario, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, as well as the northern counties of present-day West Virginia. He became an American legend while still alive, due to his kind, generous ways, his leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples.” We could probably use more Johnny Appleseeds now as we burn down the Earth.

National Shamu the Whale Day

The actual Shamu died in 1971. SeaWorld has been fooling us by using her name for other whales since then. I FEEL LIED TO.

Your move, IHOP.

Pay attention to what’s happening around you, you selfish jerk.

I try to hold off on scarves until October.

Until the government takes them to build a fence or drill for oil or whatever.

Save Your Photos Day

Isn’t that what the cloud is for?

Sunday, September 29

National Coffee Day

Now it’s your move, Starbucks.


Given that all living Veterans would have fought in a foreign war at this point, is this redundant? But then again, I’m pro any day that celebrates Veterans.

National Gold Star Mother’s Day

You know how I feel about all of the extra parent’s days on top of Mother’s and Father’s Days, but anyone who lost their child making the ultimate sacrifice for our country can have all the damn days they want.
