March, 8: Be Nasty Day
Although in most cultures this day is the International Women’s Day, it is also a day to have an excuse for doing something not really nice. Indeed, there are naughty days, as well as nice days, and you might be a bit grumpy.

April, 1: April Fools Day
Traditionally, April Fool’s Day is an opportunity for playing jokes or tricks on one another. The stranger and the more absurd the better! But be aware that all tricks or jokes must be harmless and fun! Another piece of advice would be to think twice before pulling a joke on your boss or professor, even if he or she is knows to have a good sense of humor. You never know in what way they will react to a joke and the consequences might be not so funny as the joke was supposed to be.

September, 6: Fight Procrastination Day
To many people, procrastination is a way of life. The more difficult the action or decision, the easier it is to join the procrastinators‘ club. So it’s a day to get things done, a call for action!

Some days are truely illogical and senseless, they exactly fall into the definition of Absurdity Day. So that’s probably natural that there is such a day in the calendar.
