Annoy Squidward Day

For people who might not have watched even a few episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants—an American animated comedy TV series—Squidward is a character on the show who is the unsatisfied coworker of SpongeBob and is constantly annoyed by SpongeBob’s cheery optimism.

Of course, we reason that if people aren’t fans of this show, then they’re probably not going to observe Annoy Squidward Day, a holiday that falls on the 15th of February every year. Everyone else who isn’t a fan of the TV show might want to watch a few episodes before they try to celebrate this day.

The History of Annoy Squidward Day

In the late 1990s, the episode of SpongeBob SquarePants entitled “Employee of the Month” hit the airwaves. During this episode, Squidward was so annoyed by SpongeBob’s antics that he announced that it’s Annoy Squidward Day.

SpongeBob ended up annoying him even further when he flipped open the calendar to the 15th of February and announced that this date is actually Annoy Squidward Day. This holiday has been observed ever since.
