National Gibberish Day

National Gibberish Day is dedicated to a type of speech that is nonsensical, or appears to be so. Gibberish may be random speech sounds that mean nothing, or it may be speech that means something, but is a specific jargon that not many people understand. Most times, gibberish refers to informal speech, while gobbledygook refers to the formal writing or speech that is so technical and convoluted that it can't be easily understood. The word gibberish was first used in the early 16th century, and the name may be an onomatopoeia of what unintelligible speech may sound like. Another theory is the name stems from an 8th century Persian chemist named Jabir, who wrote in technical jargon.

How to Observe National Gibberish Day
