We have taken the concept of 'national days' too far

What day is it?

No, it’s not Saturday. It’s National Children’s Craft Day. And National Learn About Butterflies Day, National Potato Chip Day and National Write Down Your Story Day. But if you had no clue that our nation’s children are supposed to be crafting butterflies out of potato chips before writing down their stories, you’re in good company.

There are many things we can blame on the internet like gender reveal fails and the opening for “Full House” where everyone looks like Ron Swanson, but none of them compare to the infernal, diurnal stream of nonsensical days dedicated to everything from the mundane to the downright bizarre, all of which more unnecessary than the last.

I’m not against having a fun day of celebration every once in a while, but it seems like these days the “fun” never ends: According to the National Day Calendar, there are “nearly 1,500 National Days, National Weeks and National Months” on their website, so you never have to miss a single one.
