Weird and Wacky Holidays

When most of us think of holidays, we think of days like Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years or Labor Day. Most of us don't think of Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, National Superhero Day or Save the Rhino Day. Yet these observances are just as official as any other holiday. We just don't get to take these days off school.

Where Do these Wacky Days Come From?

Anyone can apply to their government or to the United Nations to have their day formalized. Unless the day is racist, sexist or otherwise hateful, it is usually accepted. This has led to some pretty strange holidays but making these days official also takes up a lot of time in the US congress. Let's check some out!

I still am pretty bad at this, so I'm quick to give up, but you've actually successfully changed my opinion on this, so props to you. Well, that's what I get for messing with the master. I really appreciate the compliments, thank you (: You're not bad at this. You gave a good defense for your case. If your estimates were correct, then I don't think I could have presented them any better. Just make sure to always check the facts. Many people have negative views of Trump because they don't do this. For instance, millions in this country think that he called Mexicans criminals, when in reality it's always been about illegal immigrants. For me, fact checking is how I know exactly what Trump said, so that I can know exactly whether or not I agree with him.
