September is also National Procrastination Month.


Not really, I just made that up. I thought it'd be nice to have a holiday for people who are NOT prepared. lol

Given the insane state of the world, I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

It seems to be mainly the US that has commemorative days, weeks and months for everything imaginable.

But... where would we be without the day? We'd have 24 loose hours rolling all over the calendar, that's what. So why isn't there a National Day Day?

I noticed that too Jack. I often wonder how much of it is actually official and not just wishful thinking.

A lot of it is wishful thinking. Most holidays just appear on the calendar, and nobody pays any attention to them.

It's definitely an American thing. Most of the world says "Oak" instead of "Ock" so the whole assonant wordplay for October makes little sense as a worldwide thing. December 2nd might make a good "ocarina holiday" since it is Donati's birthday.

Seriously? That seems so weird, because to us, ock-arina sounds somewhat sophisticated, while oak-carina sounds like what a redneck would call it (and believe me, it does. I live the in back woods of Texas. Google doesn't even acknowledge my street's existence).
And Donati's birthday would definitely make sense. We should make it Ocarina Day.

You can blame Hallmark Cards for all the "Hallmark Holidays"!
