Off-Beat Holidays in April

With April fool’s Day and Easter to take the cake this month, we are now counting down some of the off-beat yet surprising holidays to celebrate in the month of April.

April 3rd World Party Day
Get out the party hats. Open up the champagne for World Party Day. World Party Day was created with the premise that humans have the right to joy and peace through social positivity and fun. A basic concept of this day is that peace is not the opposite of war. Rather, “Party” is the true opposite. This day is intended to be a synchronised, worldwide day of partying. You can celebrate this day partying in any way you’d like, alone, or in groups. We encourage you to make it a day long party. But, a shorter event is fine, too.

April 4th Hug A Newsman Day
Hug a Newsman Day gives you the opportunity to give a great, big hug to your local newsperson. C’mon, admit it; you’ve watched your cute newsman day in and day out. You’ve always told yourself if you ever see him, you would give him a great, big hug. Well, today is your opportunity. We’re waiting! 4th April Tell-A-Lie Day
Be it a white lie, or ‘lie-lie,’ National Tell-A-Lie Day gives you just the opportunity to lie to your heart’s content. Sorry Parents and teachers, apparently ‘honesty is not the best policy’ this particular day. And whoever created Pinocchio, give this boy some rest, let him lie without his nose growing on this dishonest day!

6th April Sorry Charlie Day
As much as we wish not to think about past mistakes and move forward, sometimes it’s just seems too much, this Sorry Charlie Day drown yourself in the pit of your past and recollect everything you ever did wrong, just so you know that you have made it this far having learnt your lessons.

7th April National Beer Day
The world’s third most popular drink needs some appreciation and here comes ‘National Beer Day’ – what a lovely coincidence. Let’s utepils and watch the world pass by! (side note; Utepils is definitely not the English word, ah Norwegian, Google says.)

April 10th World Golfer’s Day
Some avid golfers might suggest any and every day is Golfer’s Day. But on this day, it’s official. Golfer’s Day is an opportunity to be thankful that someone invented this addicting, yet relaxing hobby. Also referred to as “Golf Day”, there is only one proper way to enjoy this day. And, that’s out on the golf course. When Golfer’s Day falls on a weekday (this year), it is even more special. That means you now have an excuse to take a day off of work and go play a round …or two. Regardless of your score today, you know that even a bad day on the greens, is better than a good day at work.

19th April Hanging Out Day
By Hanging out literally, in this sense, just clothes! Hanging out day is celebrated to shine a light on unnecessary consumption of energy, demonstrating that we humans can do basic task without relying too much on machines and save a penny or two.

30th April National Honesty Day
It is definitely parents and teachers’ way of getting back at National Tell-A-lie day. Enough, enough you guys won, but seriously in the same month. Anyways Honesty day does have its purpose, be honest as much as your conscience allow!
