Just Because Day

Date When Celebrated : August 27 th

Today is Just Because Day. Finally, you have a chance to do something without a rhyme or reason. Most often in life, we do things because we have to, or we want to, or it's expected of us. None of those reasons apply today.  

Is there something you'd like to do, but there isn't a reason or logic for doing it? Well, today is the day to go out and do something "just because". It is most enjoyable if it is an uncommon, or unexpected activity or action. Perhaps, you have something in mind. If not, just go with the first thing that comes to your mind.  "Just because" activities often come from a "whim" or a "what if I" type of thought. We know you will quickly get the hang of this day, and have a lot of fun with it. 

To get you started, here are some of our suggestions for Just Because Day :

  • Take an unplanned day of vacation
  • Visit someone you haven't seen in a while
  • Knock on someone's door and compliment them for their great lawn
  • Skip, don't walk
  • Spin a wheel, and bicycle in the opposite direction of where the arrow points.
  • Buy something you don't need.
  • Jump in a puddle
  • Walk backwards

Here is a great idea- send someone some flowers- - "just because". Send flowers now.

Origin of Just Because Day :

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. But, we think this can be one of the best, most fun days of the year! Why!? ..Just because.

Reader Comments:

"The original version of Just Because Day may be a movable holiday called Because Day that was first celebrated on the third Wednesday in May. It was invented in the late fifties or early sixties, by my father, Joseph J. Goodwin of Los Gatos, CA. He turned the gift of a transistor radio for my mother into our own family holiday. It wasn't so much about a radio as it was about celebrating life, free afternoons, and family. My sister assured me on my last visit that she passed the tradition on to her family."  B. Lynn Goodwin
