This Week in Ridiculous Holidays: December 16th – December 22nd

I’m not gonna lie, this week’s holidays are pretty pathetic. I mean, what the hell is Mudd Day and Phileas Fogg Win A Wager Day? But on the flip side, there’s national chocolate-covered anything day, so it all balances out.

I’m a fan.

Hard pass.

Is your nana even a nana if there isn’t hard candy in her purse?

I can’t say I’ve ever had an oatmeal muffin.

One of my favorite alcoholic beverages…

Mudd Day

“December 20th is the birthday of Dr. Samuel Mudd. After assassinating Lincoln on April 14, 1865, Booth rode with co-conspirator David Herold to Mudd’s home in the early hours of the 15th for surgery on his fractured leg, before crossing into Virginia.” Um, why is this a holiday?

National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day

I’m saving mine for Christmas Eve, thanks.

National French-Fried Shrimp Day

Sounds delish but not worth the anaphylaxis.

The only one that I’m ever able to complete is the one in People Magazine.

Humbug Day


National Maine Day

Fun fact: Maine is the single largest producer of blueberries in the United States.

Phileas Fogg Win A Wager Day         

I googled this and it was way too long and boring to include here.

Winter Solstice

It’s been snowing for weeks in MA, so this feels a bit late.

National Flashlight Day 

I don’t know why you are supposed to check your flashlights on the first day of winter, but ok!

National Homeless Persons’ Remembrance Day 

Have a car? Put a box of hand and foot warmers in your glove box so that you have them on hand when you see a homeless person. It’s a little thing you can do.

No thanks!
