When is Spunky Old Broads Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 1. February is Spunky Old Broads Month.

Spunky Old Broads Day is upon us. Aren’t you glad!? This special February 1 holiday exists to give all Spunky Old Broads (S.O.B.) a day to recognize their importance and celebrate themselves and their accomplishments. It is also a perfect day for the young ladies among us an opportunity to begin planning and preparing to become a S.O.B. someday.

When thinking about what an S.O.B. should be, one thinks of successful, independent, self-reliant, smart, intelligent, outgoing and outspoken, resourceful, bold, brave, and anything but shy.

Spunky Old Broads Day Slogan: Women are like fine wine. They get better with age.

What do you do on this day? According to the originator “Although I am the Spunky Old Broad, generally for women, it means Spunky, Open, and Brave. I think that says it all.” As for you guys out there, you should be supportive and understanding of the course, and rather than criticize, it might be great to appreciate them for who they are.

Among many other things, Dr. Gayle Carson, the originator of this day, is the author of “How to Be an S.O.B–A Spunky Old Broad Who Kicks Butt.” It’s a “must read” for all spunky old broads, and anyone who aspires to be one.

Having just one day to celebrate being spunky old broads is hardly enough. Dr. Carson turned February into Spunky Old Broads Month. She also picks a Spunky Old Broad of the Year. Past winners have been Cloris Leachman, Dolly Parton, Sharon Osbourne, Goldie Hawn, Katie Couric, and Helen Mirren.

FYI Spunky Old Broads Day is a trademarked holiday.

History and Origin of Spunky Old Broads Day

Spunky Old Broads Day

This very special day was created by Dr. Gayle Carson in 2002. While emailing her about this day, she proclaimed… “I am known as Dr. Gayle S.O.B. Spunky Old Broad”. She was both sincere and proud to be an S.O.B.

Dr. Carson also said “I started it because I found that once a woman hit 50, she was almost invisible and as a woman who keeps reinventing herself and is very active in business, media, etc, I wanted to acknowledge that is not the truth. My newsletter goes out every Monday making a point about this.

BTW: While Dr. Gayle may be spunky, we found her very pleasant. 

As a side note, we recognize only a woman could create this day. Can you imagine the uproar if a man created it!?
