Awkward Moments Day

Awkward Moments Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to awkward moments. It happens to everyone, so there is absolutely no need to be ashamed! We all find ourselves in awkward situations from time to time. You may feel embarrassed and confused, but you should not dwell too much on what happened. Just look at the situation from the outside and smile! The holiday is celebrated on March 18.


The history of Awkward Moments Day is not reliably known. It must have been invented by someone who was too often in awkward situations! He decided to prove to everyone that it’s okay if something like this happened to you by creating a holiday.

Awkward situations are an integral part of society. They happen to all people, regardless of their age, gender, status, or anything else. For example, there is historical information that U.S. President Roosevelt once encountered a naked Churchill who was walking out with no clothes on!

Awkward situations became widespread with the advent of television and, later, the Internet. Now we can watch the embarrassment of famous and not very famous people, because there are special television programs. On YouTube there are entire collections of funny and unfortunate moments captured on camera. The holiday encourages you to look at awkward situations with a smile and not to see them as negative events!

Interesting facts

  • In 70% of cases, awkward situations occur because of insecurity or self-confidence (sometimes people overestimate their abilities).
  • It is normal for people to feel uncomfortable when they find themselves in unfamiliar or unfamiliar surroundings.

How to celebrate

Think back to the awkward situations you’ve been in and smile from what happened! Watch YouTube videos of funny and embarrassing situations.

Spread the word on social media. Ask users what embarrassing situations they’ve been in? How did you feel after the accident?
