About Create a Vacuum Day

When is Create a Vacuum Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 4

Create a Vacuum Day is today, a February 4 holiday. This day just might leave you in an empty void. Certainly, the unknown author of this important day, left us in a vacuum when he failed to document this holiday. It appears clear from the title, that this day celebrates something devoid of air, like outer space or a vacuum tube. However, let’s stretch it just a little and suggest it may (also) be about the common vacuum cleaner that is used to clean our homes and places of work. That way we can have more fun by celebrating both! We found no factual information or records about the origin of this day. The author left us in a vacuum.

Theories About the Meaning of This Day

Short of knowing the thinking of the unknown author of this day, we present three possible theories:

Theory #1:  A hard-working housewife, frustrated over her vacuuming chores, declared a day to commemorate the chore of vacuuming and to declare a day off from this task. The hole in this theory is that the day would likely be simply called “Vacuum Day” or “No Vacuuming Day”. Why include the word “Create” in the title? This led us to……..

Theory #2: A mad scientist (aren’t they all mad!?) created this day to celebrate the creation of a vacuum during laboratory work. But, isn’t this routine scientific work!? We think so. Therefore, it led us to…………..

Theory#3: Someone desperately in need of a simpler life, conceived this day. They wanted to create a vacuum that would suck all of the daily work, chores, and clutter out of their life. If only for one day, this holiday frees us to enjoy the simple life of leisure. Now, here’s a theory that makes sense for today!

However you choose to commemorate this day, we hope it’s a good one!

History and Origin of Create a Vacuum Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. We can offer two theories about what happened to the original documentation of this day:

1. As the originators were creating a vacuum in their laboratory, the records were caught up in the void.

2. The originators were vacuuming their homes, and the papers were sucked up along with the dust bunnies.
