National Absurdity Day

National Absurdity Day is celebrated on November 20 in America. Get ready to be crazy today and do something that is not accepted! It’s the perfect way to unwind, brighten up a dreary day, make friends happy, make others laugh… Join us to have a blast!


It is not known who created the National Day, but people accepted the idea and gladly recorded the day in the calendar. Here they are divided into 2 camps: those who do not understand anything in philosophy and those who are fond of the absurdist movement. It appeared during World War II, when the world was on the brink of nuclear war. This movement believes that there is meaning in any absurdity that only exists in the world. It is difficult to understand their thoughts for those who have never delved into the direction. If you are one of those people, then we suggest you just fool around today!

School institutions are the main place where the date is celebrated with love. Here you can really relax and do funny things. It’s always easier for kids to seem funny – you’re unlikely to come into the office with orange eyebrows and a ridiculous suit.

Interesting facts

A little about absurdism:

  • roots go back to the 19th century;
  • in the teachings of Albert Camus, the meaning of life is absurdity;
  • found a response in many hearts, but still refers to a utopian worldview;
  • many powerful people believe that a person needs to find a distance between the absurdity of being and the deliberately invented meaning, even when adhering to philosophy.

How to celebrate

Study the history of the doctrine if you have questions or are interested in details. Otherwise, do absurd things today. Organize a party, come up with a dress code for entering the house. Prepare unusual dishes – to celebrate the holiday of the absurd, fantasy is needed!
