National Middle Child's Day
Date When celebrated : This holiday is always held on the second Saturday in August
Middle Child's Day, or Middle Children's Day, gives a little well deserved recognition to the wonderful and special middle child in the family.
For parents of three children, you likely know the "Middle Child Syndrome" all too well. If you grew up the middle child with both older and younger siblings, you know the feeling a from a very personal perspective.
The first child is the first child. Beyond a doubt, the first born is a very special occasion. And he, or she, has all of mom and dad for a while before the second child comes along. The final child is and always will be the baby of the family.
This author knows what its like to be a middle child. We won't go into a dissertation about what Middle Child Syndrome is. Rather, we will focus upon one aspect. Older and younger children tend to be more outgoing, or extroverted. The middle Child tends to be more introverted, quieter, perhaps a bit of a loner.
It is very fair and fitting that we celebrate, and place into the limelight, the middle child today. Go out and enjoy this day to the fullest. Tell the world about it. Be a little outspoken, and let the world know how great it is to be the middle child. You truly are a wonderful, talented, and special person!
Happy Middle Child's Day to all of my fellow middle children!
History and Origin of Middle Child's Day:
This special day was created in 1986 by Elizabeth Walker of Sebring, Fl. As you've already guessed Elizabeth was a middle child.
From it's creation and up until a few years ago, it was called Middle Child's Day. Around 2107, a few websites began to add the word "National" to the title. According to Litton Walker, the creator's grandchild "As for websites adding the word "National" to it, I don't have a preference, but I suppose it does sound better."
There is no presidential proclamation or congressional resolution declaring this a true national day.
