Crackers Over The Keyboard Day

Crackers Over The Keyboard Day is an amazing holiday for everyone who spends a lot of time in front of computer or laptop monitors. Be honest: do you like to crunch crackers at the keyboard? Or perhaps cookies or chips? You can not admit it: if you turn your keyboard over, it will tell you what you had a snack at work, play or watch your favorite series!

Of course, eating at the computer is not the most useful habit. But often the cleanest people are so addicted to what is happening on the Internet that they allow themselves to crunch and clog the keyboard with crumbs!


This festival of crackers at the computer keyboard was created by 2 people who love to create holidays literally out of thin air: Thomas and Ruth Roy from Wellcat Holidays. Tom has been making money as an actor and radio talk show host for years, and the gorgeous Ruth is an actress, college administrator, and owner of an herbal business. But why the Roy couple chose August 28 for Crackers Over The Keyboard Day is unknown. Perhaps this is the day one of them had crumbs falling from his keyboard!

Interesting facts

Have you already tried to shake out the crumbs by flipping the keyboard, and you think that you did not succeed completely? You can try brushing out the residue using a thin, stiff brush. But there is a more radical and effective way: use a hair dryer or a vacuum cleaner!

When cleaning dirt from the working side of the keys, be careful with liquids containing alcohol. Otherwise, you will easily be left with a “blind” keyboard – letters and numbers will simply be erased! First, check how the plastic of one of the buttons reacts to your cleaning agent.

How to celebrate

Do 2 simple useful things in Crackers Over The Keyboard Day:

  1. Finally clean the keyboard from excess food supplies.
  2. Buy more crackers, but try not to eat them all at once, spread them out over a week or so. And use them only for really interesting activities! If you are busy with work, the best option is not to eat at the computer, so your keyboard will be cleaner and you will be slimmer.
