Walk on Your Wild Side Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on April 12

Walk on Your Wild Side Day encourages us to take a chance. It's a call to the inner strength within you, to do something out of your comfort zone. Do something wild and crazy, and perhaps a little daring.

To participate in this special day, you don't have to do something dangerous, like hang gliding, parachuting, or riding a zip line. And, please don't do something dangerous or illegal. Rather, think of something that the normal and usual, "you" would not do. Then, kick your shoes off and go do it....... just go wild. After you have performed this wild and crazy thing, don't forget that you have Facebook bragging rights. 

While the creators are known (see below), they did not clearly say why or what inspired them to create this event. There are two things that may have led to the inspiration for this day. In 1956 Nelson Algren published the novel A Walk on the Wild Side. And, Walk on the Wild Side was a song written and sung by Lou Reed in 1972.

Today's Quote: "Ability is what you're capable of. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." - - Lou Holtz
