About Great Poetry Reading Day

When is Great Poetry Reading Day? This holiday is always celebrated on April 28

Great Poetry Reading Day is today, an April 28 holiday. This day honors some really great verses. We all were introduced to poetry in high school. During those impressionable teenage years, many teens became enamored with poetry, especially the romantic kind. 

There’s lots of poetry out there. Some poems are good, and some are not so good. Today is intended to read the world’s greatest poetry. But, you don’t have to limit your readings to famous poets. If you wrote a poem to that special someone, today is the perfect time to read it to her.

Tip: Guys, you will score a lot of points, if you read romantic poetry to your lady today. Today is also Kiss Your Mate Day.

History and Origin of Great Poetry Reading Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day.

In our first study in the early 2000s, this holiday was called Great Poetry Reading Day. In our second study, some internet websites are now adding the word “national” to the title. This seems strange, as it apparently did not come from the unknown creator of the holiday. Also, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.

Definition of “National” Days – and why it is important to distinguish true National days.
