About Babbling Day
Date When Celebrated: Babbling Day is always observed on October 21
Blatherskites, mark this day on your calendar. Today is Babbling Day, an October 21 holiday. We’ve all had the joy of listening to people who ramble on, saying a lot of words without much sense of reasoning. This isn’t a day to remain silent. Tell everyone you know about this special day. How many words will it take you to tell then?
Blatherskite Definition: In case you didn’t know, a “Blatherskite ” is a person who babbles. It’s a person who talks a lot without making much sense.
What’s all the chatter about over this special day? Well, on Babbling Day, we celebrate those of us with a glib tongue. You know them when you hear them. They’re talking gibberish. They never stop talking, and babble on and on. They can turn a simple one-sentence statement into an endless dissertation. Did you ever hear a blatherskite answer a yes or no question with just one word?
Spend this day babbling like a baby if you must. As for me, I will spend it by a babbling brook.
