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.

National Gibberish Day is observed next on Sunday, September 20th, 2020. It has always been observed annually on September 20th.

How to Observe

Celebrate the day by talking and writing in gibberish. It really doesn't matter what you say, as long as other people can't understand what you are saying. If you want some help, try this gibberish translator.
