Awkward Moments Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 18

C'mon, admit it. You've had an awkward moment or two in your life. You know, the ones that make you say "I'm so embarrassed". We've all had those weird and uncomfortable occurrences and events, that we wish we could take back. I'm sure you're no exception. Some are innocent little occasions out of our control, a chance encounter or experiences that may not have even been your fault. Others are real whoppers, the kind that makes you want to crawl under a rock, until the red fades from your cheeks. Years after the event, we can reflect back and usually laugh about it with others.

Being able to laugh about your gaffes and awkward moments is good for you. As a matter of fact, being able to relate your past discretions and awkward moments, is a big part of Awkward Moments Day.

We've identified the main objectives of this special day:

  1. You are encouraged to embrace your awkwardness today.
  2. Celebrate and forget past awkward moments.
  3. Share those memorable moments with a friend. Laugh about it.
  4. Stop taking yourself so seriously. Life is too short to dwell on it, or remain embarrassed for long. 

However you decide to enjoy this day, we hope rehashing those awkward moments, brings many smiles and laughs to your day.
