18 March – Awkward Moments Day
Awkward moments happen all the time and to some folks more than others! For anyone who has ever wished the ground would open up and swallow them, Awkward Moments Day is a celebration of all awkward moments. From walking out of a public toilet with loo roll stuck to a shoe, to realising you’ve been speaking to someone every day for a year and don’t know their name. Life is full of these moments.
Although there isn’t much information regarding the origins of Awkward Moments Day, many people have commented on how interesting it is that Awkward Moments Day is the day after St Patrick’s Day! Awkward Moments Day can boast a mascot though, the awkward turtle.
So, if anything awkward happens on Awkward Moments Day, be sure to see the humour of the situation and have a good laugh about it before moving on to the next one!
