National Comfy Day

National Comfy Day is a holiday observed annually on February 20th that encourages everyone to get comfortable for the day. What does that mean? It means curling up with a soft, warm blanket, eating comfort foods, and just spending the day lounging on the couch.

Surprisingly, this holiday became popular because of a reality TV show and the creators of a product aptly named “The Comfy.” Regardless of where this holiday began, we can all agree that a day of staying home and staying warm and comfortable sounds like a really good idea.

The History of National Comfy Day

In 2017, Michael and Brian Speciale invented a wearable blanket known as “The Comfy,” an invention that debuted on the popular TV series Shark Tank. While we’re unsure how successful this product was, we do know that the episode led to the creation of National Comfy Day. Now, this day is celebrated all over the United States by anyone looking to be more comfortable.

Some of the Best Comfort Foods

We can’t talk about a holiday called National Comfy Day without mentioning some of the best comfort foods on the planet. The following list may not contain the best comfort foods in the world, but they do include some of our favorites.

Observing National Comfy Day

We don’t think people have to run out and buy The Comfy to celebrate this holiday. Putting on a pair of old sweatpants and an oversized shirt is probably good enough.

Add a big blanket, a nice tasty beverage, and a couple of episodes of The Golden Girls, and you’re probably set. While kicking back and relaxing, be sure to use the hashtag #NationalComfyDay to spread the word to everyone else who needs to be comfortable.
