Americans have some of the weirdest holidays and to exemplify this I chose March. Keep in mind that I only chose one holiday a day because there are days in which there can be two and even three holidays a day.
March 1 – Peanut Butter Lover’s Day
This is the joke of that day: What do you get when you cross peanut butter with an elephant? – Peanut butter that never forgets or an elephant that sticks to the roof of your mouth.
March 2 – Old Stuff Day
This holiday appeared because of everyone’s response when asked “What’s up?” or “What’s new?”. Most people usually say “Nothing much, same old, same old”. That is why, this day has become a moment of reflection towards your life.
March 3 – If Pets had Thumbs Day
If you have ever wondered how easier would your life be if your pet would have thumbs and how would it look like, this is the day to let your imagination run wild.
