About Humiliation Day
When is Humiliation Day? This holiday is always observed on January 3
Humiliation Day is not a day to humiliate someone or put them to shame. Rather, this January 3 holiday is a time to recognize the negativity of humiliating or embarrassing someone or a group of people.
Perhaps too many people associate humbleness with humility. So, they think today is a day to be humble. Being humble is a good virtue. However, it is not the same as humility. Humiliation is a negative impression placed upon someone….which is not good, period.
Let’s all use this special day, to remind us to avoid humiliating or demeaning anyone for any reason.
Today is also the perfect time to eat a little humble pie.
