NATIONAL HERMIT DAY
National Hermit Day takes place annually on October 29..
This is a day to take some time to spend alone. It is time to step away from the hustle and bustle of your every day life and retreat to someplace quiet.
The word hermit comes from the Latin ĕrēmīta, meaning “of the desert”.
A hermit is a person who lives, to some degree, in seclusion from society.
To celebrate National Hermit Day, find a secluded place to go and:
- Turn off your phone
- Turn off your computer
- Let your worries be free
- Rest and relax
- Enjoy your quiet time
- Read, write or draw
- Short Nap
Post on social media using #NationalHermitDay to encourage others to do the same.
October 29th is the day of Death of St. Colman in Ireland in 632 A.D. He had a seven year hermitage in the Burren Forest in a cave. This is believed to be be the reason that October 29th was chosen as National Hermit Day.
