Predictions over recent decades suggested that May 21st 2011 would mark the end of the world, in the form of the Christian Rapture. As far as we can tell, this event didn’t happen as Harold Camping predicted, and now the date is celebrated with ‘rapture parties’ and ‘end of the world parties’.
Some holidays are set up with the express purpose of ensuring that something we often take for granted or miss entirely receives the honour that it deserves.
I Need A Patch For That Day is a good example of that. Quite simply, it is a day in which we sit back and celebrate the humble patch in all its forms. You may be wondering what sort of patch is referred to, and the answer is that it is every single type of patch that you can imagine: from patches in clothes to nicotine patches, from software patches to patchwork quilts.
Do we really need a day to celebrate patches? Well, think about it. Every single day we take many little things for granted, even though we would often struggle without them. Think of I Need A Patch For That Day as an idea that helps us to appreciate those little things in life.
When: Always on May 21st
Take a memo... Today is National Memo Day. What is it for? Who created it? Why? These are questions awaiting an answer that may never come. Every once in a while, we discover a special day with no known history or description.
Have a pen and paper handy. Go grab a post-it note. Stand ready at your PC. We suggest you enjoy National Memo Day by taking memos wherever and whenever possible.
Note: If we had a say in creation of this day, we would rename it ""National No Memo Day"". Think of the extra time you'd have, if you didn't have to write any memos today!
