National Pass Gas Day

National Pass Gas Day is not the most common holiday in the world, but why not? We hide obscene sounds so as not to make others laugh and not to burn with shame … Relax – January 7 is the very date on which you can not hold back!


It is not known who first said that releasing gases is a shameful occupation. This is an absolutely natural process of the body, and it is also very useful. Gas is a product of digestion that should not remain inside the body. The person who decided that this was an indecent business had a strong influence on society.

Did you know that the emitted gases contain methane, carbon dioxide, and even hydrogen sulfide if we eat certain foods? It’s amazing that the “explosive mixture” is on fire! We are sure you have seen similar experiments when a lighter is brought to the fifth point during the process. Hey, don’t repeat these actions, celebrate National Day in a different way!
