Be A Kid Again Day

Be a Kid Again Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on the 8th of July every year. It’s a day that encourages people to put their adult cares away and to embrace a carefree existence for just one 24-hour period. This means taking on a childlike wonder and doing things that they enjoyed as children.

This could be as simple as digging a hole with a stick in the backyard or something as elaborate as putting together a model of an F18 Hornet. Perhaps it’s gathering friends and family members together to play a rousing game of tag or basketball. We can’t tell people how to celebrate this holiday, all we can do is tell them that they should.

The History Of Be A Kid Again Day

Unfortunately, we don’t know who invented this holiday, when they invented it, or why they invented it. Like so many holidays, it’s one that just spontaneously appeared on the Internet one day. By our calculations, it’s a holiday that’s been around for a few years now and one that has encouraged a lot of people to live a more childlike existence, if only for the day.

Observing Be A Kid Again Day

Observing this holiday should be one of the easiest things that a person can do. The trouble that some people have with observing this holiday is that they often forget what it was like to be a kid. That’s something they’re going to have to rediscover on this day.

If they can do that, then they can feel the joy, awe, and inspiration that they had when they were a child. While they’re embracing their inner child, they should also take the time to spread the word about this holiday around the world using the hashtag #BeAKidAgainDay.

After all, we think every single adult on the planet could use a little bit of a break to once again live as a child would.
