Blah Blah Blah Day

Everyone has had the experience of being nagged or scolded by someone but only hearing “blah, blah, blah.” The same sound comes out of Charlie Brown’s teacher’s mouth as she’s speaking to the class. It indicates someone droning on about something or the content of the message not being worth listening to.

Why do we mention that today in this article? We only mention it because April 17th is observed as Blah Blah Blah Day. This is a holiday that encourages everyone to shut out the discordant cacophony of those around them and instead turn inward to their own inner voice.

After all, sometimes we just need a break from the chaos of the world so that we can follow our one, true path in life. This is what this holiday encourages.

The History of Blah Blah Blah Day

This holiday was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy in 2006. If you’re not familiar with those two people, then allow us to introduce them to you. The Roys run a website called Wellcat, where they mainly sell herbs.

However, it also happens to be the website where they create new and sometimes fantastical holidays such as Bathtub Party Day, National Brutus Day, and Name Your PC Day.

They originally created this holiday to encourage everyone to do the things that their families and friends have been nagging them about. Things such as losing weight or quitting smoking.

This is how some people celebrate it, but it’s also celebrated by other people looking for a break from everyone’s advice. In our opinion, this holiday can be observed either way.

Observing Blah Blah Blah Day

Blah Blah Blah Day can be observed in any number of different ways. People can use the day to finally listen to all of the nagging that they’ve been hearing to make a positive change in their life.

They can quit smoking, get more exercise, change jobs, or whatever it was that they were being nagged to do. However, that’s not the only way to observe this holiday. People can also go the opposite way.

They can use the day to shut out everyone’s criticisms and instead live their lives in the way that they see fit. Either way is an acceptable way to observe this holiday. Anyone and everyone wishing to observe this holiday can let the world know how they’re going to celebrate it by using the hashtag #BlahBlahBlahDay on social media.
