Ever had an experience that was so amazing, it’s worth doing twice? Or said something so brilliant that it simply bears repeating? Well, that’s exactly what this day is all about! 

Each year on National Repeat Day followers of this unusual event seek out activities and experiences they love so much that they want to do them over and over again.

History of National Repeat Day

The concept of routines and repetition is something that keeps humans and society moving through life with regular rhythms. In fact, the idea of getting stuck in a time loop, where the same things happen over and over again, has been the subject of science fiction stories for many years. National Repeat Day takes all of these things into consideration!

National Repeat Day, this festival of going back for more, includes the celebration of doing things once, and then again. Some popular activities might include starting off with a viewing of “Groundhog Day”, or having the same favorite meal for both lunch and dinner.

Other people might enjoy the day by revisiting important places from the past, such going back to the spot where a couple got engaged, popping over to the school where you graduated, or reliving the moment where someone celebrated a personal triumph.

After all, if it’s worth doing once; it’s worth doing again!

How to Celebrate National Repeat Day

Have some fun – and then have some fun again – when taking part in the celebration of National Repeat Day. Enjoy making the most out of the day with some of these ideas:

Watch Some Fun Shows for National Repeat Day

For some avid entertainment fans, a day of celebration isn’t complete unless some interesting media around the theme has been viewed! In this case, the celebration of National Repeat Day might be rounded off by settling down to watch – or re-watch – some interesting films or television series that center around the theme of doing something more than one time.

Try out some of these interesting ideas for shows to watch:

  • Groundhog Day (1993). Bill Murray wins the heart of Andie MacDowell, accompanied by the fictional folks from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. 
  • Back to the Future (1985). Time travel is always fun! This time, Michael J. Fox brings adventure when he travels back to the time when his parents met.
  • Palm Springs (2020). Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti star in this comedic movie where two wedding guests get stuck on repeat, living the same day over and over again.
  • Run Lola Run (1998). Franka Potente stars as a woman who is on an urgent mission to save her boyfriend’s life, but finds herself in several twenty minute time loops.

Host a National Repeat Day Event

Celebrating National Repeat Day will certainly be more fun with more people! Invite friends over to celebrate and watch the Groundhog Day movie for entertainment. Decorate with mirrors, serve all of the snacks in double portions, and make a music playlist themed around the idea of having everything in twos.

Put Everything On Repeat

In celebration of National Repeat Day, some people may take things to the extreme by repeating everything they say (everything they say) until others join in with the fun or ask what they are doing. However, it is important to keep in mind that the act of compulsively repeating what a person says to themselves, usually under their breath, is a nervous tic. Called palalia, this tic often appears in children (like the character Brick Heck on The Middle) and it’s important to be sensitive so that others know they are not being made fun of!

Dress Up As Twins

Always wanted to be a twin? Well this day is the perfect opportunity! Get dressed up and enjoy National Repeat Day by becoming double trouble with a friend. And for those lucky people who are already twins or triplets? Well, today was simply made for them!
