International Day of Awesomeness is an annual international holiday dedicated to awesomeness. Yes, yes, this is the day to show everyone how cool you are! The joke holiday is not an official holiday. It is celebrated on March 10.
The creation of International Day of Awesomeness is a credit to Kevin Lawer and his friends. It was originally just a joke when, in August 2007, one of his colleagues decided to celebrate Kevin’s own day of awesomeness. The corresponding post appeared on Twitter.
Kevin appreciated the joke and decided to create a similar celebration on an international scale. His idea worked, and this funny day was widely shared. Chuck Norris’s birthday was chosen as the day of celebration. He’s the hero of many American action movies that many movie buffs know one thing about – this guy is freaking awesome!
Taking the holiday seriously, it should be noted that its purpose is to encourage people not to hide their talents and not be afraid to show them in public. Your most daring solutions and ideas should see the light, perhaps they will make a real breakthrough in some field of activity.
- Coolness should be understood as a high level of skill/knowledge that is capable of impressing people around you.
- The first occurrence of the word “Awesomeness” in the social plane is noted in the Oxford Dictionary in 1598.
