Spunky Old Broads Day
annually on February 1st
The celebration of spunky old broads was created as a month-long holiday by Dr. Gayle Carson, and the first day of the celebration has also become Spunky Old Broads Day. Carson, a coach and advisor to CEOs and entrepreneurial managers around the world, who focuses on helping older women in particular, thought that the words spunky, old, and broad all had negative connotations, and decided to put them together to create something positive, coming up with Spunky Old Broads (SOBs). The day and month celebrate women 50 and older who don't want to get old quietly, and "who are interested in living a regret-free life." She chose February, as that is her birth month.
How to Observe
If you are a woman over 50, spend the day living life to the fullest. Get out of your house and refuse to be quiet. Reinvigorate the spunkiness in your soul and do something you've never done before. If you aren't a woman, or are a woman who is not over 50, you can celebrate by thinking of all the spunky old broads you know, and by celebrating them. You could also celebrate some spunky old broads in culture. One way to do so could be by watching episodes of The Golden Girls.
