March 26:

Make Your Own Holiday Day is the perfect day to celebrate whatever you’d like! The only guidelines are to make sure that your chosen topic for celebration is not already an official or unofficial holiday, and, of course, be courteous to your fellow humans.

Just FYI, “Joe Day” is taken, but I’m sure there are plenty of other things available.

Today, you can skip all the red tape and effort, and just declare Your Own Holiday!

It’s also Live Long and Prosper Day, which was created by Matt McCarthy in 2017 on Make Your Own Holiday Day. McCarthy’s purpose for this day is to encourage people to think about how they can live long and prosper. Whether it’s through exercise, eating right, or swearing off robbing banks, this is the day for self-improvement.

Dufour confessed the next day, but since an article was already in the paper, National Goof Off Day was born.
