About National Splurge Day
When is National Splurge Day? This holiday is always observed on June 18
The key word for today is “binge”. It’s definitely not a day for penny pinchers, anyone on a diet, thrifty people, or Ebenezer Scrooge. Rather, it is a day to celebrate and be a little extravagant. That’s what you do on National Splurge Day, oh Yeah! On this June 18 holiday, open the purse strings, eat to excess and have some fun.
There are certain dates on the calendar that you look forward to with great excitement. You mark the date and wait in eager anticipation. For me, National Splurge Day is one of those very special days.
National Splurge Day is a day to treat yourself excessively, to anything you want. Do it in style, let there be no limits today. Isn’t that a great thing? Go out and buy that boat you’ve always dreamed of, go to the spa and get the deluxe treatment, or buy that pricey new outfit you’ve wanted. Maybe, you’re on a diet, and that special dessert has too many calories. Maybe, you want to buy a steak, and the budget is a little tight. Have a little extra of your favorite ice cream, splurge a little and go out to a fancy restaurant for dinner. The options are endless. Toss out your reservations about spending over your budget and go for it today.
How to Celebrate National Splurge Day
- Celebrate this day to the fullest degree. Treat yourself to whatever you want and to excess.
- Have that extra scoop of ice cream.
- Eat as much candy as you want. Add some extra hot fudge, too.
- Forget about your budget for just one day. For, this is indeed a day to splurge. Do so without worry or concern…until tomorrow.
- Take the day off of work and binge-watch your favorite television program.
To keep in the spirit of the day, you may not want to balance your checkbook or step on a scale until tomorrow.
Whatever you do, it is not a day to be a miser.
