Over the past few months, I couldn’t help but notice my social media blowing up about certain days of the year. From what seemed like out of nowhere, I was seeing things like, “Happy National Doughnut Day!” and, “There’s never too much #nationalpieday.” Until recently, I was never aware of how many goofy national days there really are in the USA.
So, naturally, I took to the web to see what other sorts of wacky days I could find. I stumbled across this real list of national days and decided to share my favorite one from each month. So without further adieu…
