All of our lives contain a bit of chaos, and it’s this confusion and disorder that can really make most people feel like they can’t keep it together. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case at all. People can learn how to take control of the unpredictability of life and turn it into something positive. And one of the first steps to doing that is acknowledging the chaos. Once that’s done, they can then celebrate Pandemonium Day on the 14th of July every year. This is a holiday on which people can pull themselves out of the ruts they have allowed themselves to fall into, take control of the whirlwind, and do something special. It’s a day where the normal rules don’t apply and people can rid themselves of the expectations they burden themselves with the rest of the year.
The History Of Pandemonium Day
Unfortunately, we were unable to uncover the origins of this holiday. We don’t know who started it, when they started it or why it was started. Most likely, whoever started this holiday did so to pull themselves out of a rut they were in, put away their responsibilities and just enjoy a “me” day.
However, just because we don’t know who started this holiday doesn’t mean that we don’t know the origins of the word pandemonium. Pandemonium is a word that was first used in John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost. The word is a combination of two words-the Greek word “pan” which means “all” and the Latin word “daemonium” which means “demon.” Therefore the word actually means “all demons” and was the name for the capital of Hell where demons lived. Nowadays, the word means something that is chaotic, unpredictable, and disorganized.
