About Clean Up Your Room Day

When is Clean Up Your Room Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 10

Clean Up Your Room Day has arrived. This is a day parents eagerly await……….. and kids dread! There are a sizable number of adults who are not looking forward to this May 10 holiday either.  I don’t know about you, but I’m not looking forward to being cooped up in my room on a beautiful spring day. If we must have a holiday to incent us to vacuum and dust our room, why couldn’t it be in the winter when the weather is lousy!?  

Tip: Do you remember the masks we wore during the pandemic? We recommend you put one on before stirring up all that dust.

If you’ve got kids, their rooms may be a vast wasteland, filled with all kinds of “good stuff”. “Messy” is too kind of an adjective to describe the conditions. It’s impossible to walk through the room. Heck, you might not be able to see the far side of it. Every dresser and shelf (and under the bed), is packed with everything imaginable. The dust has been piling up as long as your child has been around. Comfy, cozy, and quite livable to the child, it’s an everyday source of frustration for the “folks”.

To mom and dad’s delight, and every child’s chagrin, Clean Up Your Room Day arrives every May 10th. Get out the shovels. Bring in an industrial-sized dumpster. It’s time for everyone to clean their rooms!

Note to Kids: Clean Up Your Room Day also applies to your parents. You may want to inspect to assure that mom and dad practice what they preach!

How to Celebrate Clean Up Your Room Day

History and Origin of Clean Up Your Room Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. We do not know why the creator selected a day to take up the massive chore of cleaning our room. If we have to clean it up, we’d rather do it on a cold and snowy winter day when we are stuck indoors anyways.

This is referred to as a “National” day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. It seems that many of the food and candy-related days have tagged on the word “national” onto the title.  We suspect amid a sugar high, the creators got a little excited, and a wee bit carried away.
