About Hermit Day

Date When Celebrated: Hermit Day is always observed on October 29

If ever there was a day to crawl into your shell all by yourself, talk to no one, and act like a hermit crab, today is that day. Hermit Day is today, an October 29 holiday.  Certainly, as a recluse you shun publicity. Instead, this is a quiet day to spend quietly in seclusion, all by yourself.

For some people, being a recluse is a way of life. They spend every day by themselves, in peaceful seclusion. For whatever reason, Hermits prefer living away from the crowds and the sea of humanity. For many of us who lead an increasingly busy and stressful lifestyle, the idea of being a “Hermit for a Day” is very tempting. The thought of getting away from it all, even if for just one day, is very appealing.

If you are a Hermit, celebrate your lifestyle today. If you’re one of the many, who yearn for a break from your hectic lifestyle, be a Hermit on this day. Chill out by yourself where no one can find you. We hope that no one interrupts the calm and serenity you seek today.

Have a happy, secluded, quiet, and peaceful Hermit Day.

How to Celebrate Hermit Day

  • Spend this day in a secluded area or environment.
  • May we suggest you do so with a good reading book all by yourself?
  • If you are a recluse, stay in your shell and celebrate quietly with no one but yourself.
  • Go into hiding for the next 48 hours. Halloween is coming, and with it comes witches, ghosts, ghouls, vampires, and all kinds of scary creatures.
  • We won’t suggest a Hermit Day party, as this is an oxymoron.

History and Origin of Hermit Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. We believe this day was started by a hermit. So far, he has not come out of his hiding place long enough to claim credit for creating this day. The last thing he’d want is to be in the limelight.

Aside from Ecard companies and calendar websites, there is little reference to this day.
