NATIONAL GROUCH DAY
If you are a grouch or if you know someone who is a grouch then today is your special day, it is National Grouch Day, a day that is celebrated annually on October 15. According to Sesame Street Magazine, National Grouch Day was created for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.
- a person who complains frequently or constantly
- a habitually irritable or complaining person
It seems that a grouch may be happy (although they would never admit it) only when other’s are unhappy and grouchy also. It is then that they feel most comfortable by having others share in their world with them.
National Grouch Day would be a good time to send a “grouch” e-card to someone you know and then ask a friend, whether they be a grouch or not, to come on over, sit back, share some popcorn, relax and watch “Grumpy Old Men” !
If you are not normally a grouch, it is okay to be a little bit grouchy as you have an excuse. If you are a grouch; this is your day and…… We hope your future days are much brighter! Post on social media using #NationalGrouchDay to spread the word.
Our research found that, although not confirmed, there are indications the creator of National Grouch Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was the Sesame Street Magazine, in honor of the famous Sesame Street grump – Oscar the Grouch.
