Blase’ Day

The word “blasé” means being unimpressed or indifferent to something because you’ve seen or experienced it before. So, is Blasé Day a holiday on which people are supposed to be unimpressed by the holiday itself or by anything they experience on this day?

We’re not quite sure, but we do know that this holiday is observed annually on the 25th of November. Since November is home to many holidays, perhaps this day is for people not to worry about all those other holidays. Maybe, just maybe, it’s okay to feel blasé about Thanksgiving—a holiday that occurs around this date every year.

The History of Blasé Day

This holiday was created just a few years ago. It’s yet another wacky invention by Thomas Roy and Ruth Roy from Wellcat Holidays—a website where they’ve created a variety of strange and odd holidays. What are some of the holidays they’ve created? They include Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day, Bad Poetry Day, and Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day.

A Little More Information on Being Blasé

Now that we think about it, this holiday probably encourages people to step away from the holiday season for a while because typically the holiday season begins around Thanksgiving.

People may just need a break before they’re hit with all the holidays that start with Thanksgiving, continue with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, roll into Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and then end with New Year’s Eve. That’s quite the concentration of holidays for people to worry about in a short period of time, so maybe this holiday allows people to get ready for it.

Observing Blasé Day

We guess the best way to observe this holiday is to just not worry about anything. To just wallow in your own apathy toward the entire world. If you’re not too apathetic to do so, however, be sure to use the hashtag #BlaseDay to spread the word about this holiday around the world.
