Learn about Curmudgeons Day

Curmudgeons Day is one of those holidays most people find hard to believe is real.  There’s no need to worry, though, because you don’t have to be grumpy to celebrate it.

There are many schools of thought regarding Curmudgeons Day. Some say it’s a holiday where you’re supposed to stay home all day and do nothing. Others, though, see it as a day when you’re permitted to be as miserable and grouchy as you like. In fact, they consider it a day when grumpiness should be celebrated.

If you’re not feeling too ill-tempered, though, you can still celebrate Curmudgeons Day, and have fun while doing it. Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate this holiday without necessarily being grumpy yourself:

  • Spread the cheer and make a curmudgeon you know laugh;
  • Watch a film featuring curmudgeons, such as Grumpy Old Men;
  • Take a few moments to appreciate your life and why you really shouldn’t be grumpy.

Curmudgeons Day is an official holiday, but if you really can’t seem to get into the right mood to be true to it, you can always have a bit of fun with the family.

I know an old school friend whom I would now describe as curmudgeonly. He is stuck in a loop of moaning about the same things over and over again. He can’t seem to get over the smallest incidents. He was married and has a family. He never mentions them fondly. It’s impossible to spend time with this man. He is warm hearted and kind, but being around him for long makes my temper flare. For example, he will moan about the time it takes for traffic lights to change. He moans constantly. Sadly, I’ve given up on him.
