False Confession Day

False Confession Day is a holiday observed every November 21st that encourages everyone celebrating to make a false confession. Why? Well, we’re not entirely sure why someone would confess falsely.

We suppose that some people might do it to find out what a friend or loved one actually thinks about a particular subject, and some people will probably use a false confession as a prank. Hey, we’re not here to judge, just to inform people about the holiday. So, with that in mind, let’s explore this holiday in depth and see what more we can learn about it.

The History of False Confession Day

We could say that we know the answers to the questions of who, what, and where as they pertain to this holiday, but we’re afraid that would be a false confession. We simply don’t know who created this holiday, where it was created, or why it was created.

We’re not even really sure of the point of this holiday. All that we do know is that this day has been around for a few years now. That’s all we know. And yes, that is a real confession.

Observing False Confession Day

As we see it, there are good and bad ways to observe this holiday. A bad way to observe it would be to confess to someone that you have a deadly disease or condition of some sort. That’s a terrible idea, and we encourage everyone to avoid making those types of confessions.

We also recommend that people avoid making confessions that could hurt another person’s feelings or place that person in jeopardy. Instead, if people are going to observe this holiday, they should make confessions that are relatively harmless. However you decide to observe this holiday, just be sure to use the hashtag #FalseConfessionDay on social media to spread the word about it online.
