Visiting a random website, it occurred to me, that we don't have enough of weird and bizarre holidays to celebrate.
Here's a few holiday to start with, I think we should make some more - let's see if we can fill out the whole year.
May 9th - International Sloth Day
: Though November 19th is the official day for the sloth according to my calendar, I've been told by a reader of this page that they previously established May 9th to be International Sloth Day. I've got nothing against celebrating the sloth twice a year, or you can choose whichever one you desire. Just don't celebrate too actively, or you'll defeat the whole purpose of Sloth Day in the first place.
May 23rd - The Defenestration of Prague
: This is an actual date in history, which warrants note whether you care about the actual event or not. On May 23, 1618, in Prague, a few royal officials were thrown out a window of Hradcany Castle by some noblemen, but survived the fall by landing in a cart full of manure.
More importantly, defenstration is easily one of the most totally underused words in the English language. For those who are unaware, it means "the act of throwing something or someone out of a window." The date for this event also falls on an extremely Illuminated day of the year, 5/23, which incorporates both the Discordian number 5 and our old friend 23. Fnord.
May 25th - Towel Day
: Towel Day celebrates the life and work of Douglas Adams, who championed the many uses of the towel in his book series/movie/radio series/movie/tv movie/breakfast cereal, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Carry your towel proudly.
And of course:
19th of September - International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
