National Whiner’s Day

National Whiner’s Day is dedicated to people who complain about life! This holiday is an opportunity to focus on the positive and understand that we have everything we need to be happy.


It is believed that after expressing our complaints, it can really make us feel better. For many, it is a form of therapy! The message of the day is to be grateful – take a look around and you will realize that you have all the things you need to be happy.

National Whiner’s Day was created in 1986 by Reverend Kevin Zaborny. His aim was to get people to stop complaining and find peace. He chose the date (December 26th) strategically, as he noticed that the most complaints came after Christmas. He believes that this is due to the tension of preparing for the holiday and the fuss that comes along with it.

Reverend Zaborny declared that the problems are so small that they can be solved with a kind word or a smile! He is also the inventor of Hug Day, which demonstrates the power of a touch from a loved one to dull even physical pain.
