Everybody knows about Groundhog’s Day, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day, but in case you’re bored of the usual holidays (and maybe a little bit relieved that Valentine’s Day is over), check out CM’s list of some very obscure holidays that also occur in February.
February 5th – World Nutella Day
It’s real! Why is this not more widely celebrated??
February 7th – Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbor Day
Wait, so not just eight or nine of my fingers? I should wave all of them? Seems pretty extreme…
February 9th – National Toothache Day
If this is a holiday, shouldn’t there also be a day dedicated to celebrating that special moment when you’re trapped alone in a public bathroom and there’s no more toilet paper?
February 14th – National Ferris Wheel Day
I personally love Valentine’s Day, but in case you’re not a huge fan you can always spend the 14th celebrating Ferris Wheels…
February 15th – National Gumdrop Day
I think the last time I actually saw a legitimate gumdrop in person was never.
February 18th – National Battery Day
I’m guessing the Duracell marketing department dreamed this one up. Get charged up about national battery day!
February 22nd – International World Thinking Day
Thinking has apparently become so difficult that we need to designate a special day just to get it all done.
February 23rd – International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
I bet dogs would love this day…if they had the mental capacity to understand what a holiday is.
February 27th – No Brainer Day
International World Thinking Day was just exhausting. We all deserve a day off.
February 28th – Public Sleeping Day
This is great news for me, and all other sleep deprived college students.
