Humiliation Day

Humiliation Day is not a day to humiliate others, but rather, a day to recognize the harm that humiliating others causes. Additionally, it is a day to be humble and thankful, and for those who are religious, it may be a day to get closer to God. The origin of the holiday is ambiguous, but the religious component may trace its roots to a Day of National Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer, proclaimed by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, as well as by John Adams and James Madison before him.

How to Observe Humiliation Day

Instead of humiliating others, recognize the harm that is caused, and use the day to treat others with respect and dignity and to practice humility. If you are religious, use the day to get closer to God, through prayer or other means.
