National Absurdity Day

National Absurdity Day is celebrated on November 20 in America. It’s the perfect way to unwind, brighten up a dreary day, make friends happy, make others laugh… Join us to have a blast!


National Absurdity Day is not known to have been created by anyone in particular, however it was happily recorded in the calendar by those who accepted the idea. It is believed to have originated 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, but if you’re one of those people, then why not just have some fun today!

School institutions are the main places where the date is celebrated with love and enthusiasm. It’s always easier for kids to seem funny – you’re unlikely to come into the office with orange eyebrows and a ridiculous suit!
