Seven Lamest Holidays Ever
These holidays will leave you scratching your head wondering: Why?
Dec. 20, 2010— -- Christmas, New Year's Eve and Thanksgiving are some of the best-known and widely-celebrated holidays. But almost every day of the year is actually a holiday -- just not ones involving celebrations that most people know about or even care about.
There's a special day for answering your cat's questions and one to honor hypnotism. There's even a "Show and Tell Day at Work."
Why do people bother to celebrate? We don't know but they may be assured that somewhere, some lone sole might be rejoicing over National Handwriting Day.
It took us a lot of time and research but below is a list of some of the lamest holidays out there. These were so many that we decided to limit this list just to those that occur in January. Yes, there are just that many odd events that we celebrate. Maybe we should start our own holiday to celebrate them, but then, that would be really lame.
"On that day, they're supposed to respectively make a list of their gripes," O'Brien explained. Then one by one go down the list and -- in a respectful way -- try to resolve them.
"People need to take back whatever's bothering them," O'Brien said. "You need to address it. People tend to build up steam."
While we agree with the general idea of not letting grudges build, do we really need an entire day for this? Is an entire day really enough? What happens if you have a new gripe the next day? Do you have to wait 364 days to resolve it? At this point in our lives, we should all be adult enough to deal with our problems as they occur.
