Awkward Moments Day

Awkward moments are those that cause embarrassment, and they pretty much happen every day. Maybe we forget what someone's name is after not seeing them for a while. Maybe someone says something crazy at a large group meeting and no one knows how to respond. Maybe some awkward things were said after having a few too many Irish beers yesterday. Awkwardness abounds everywhere. Whatever the case, today is a day to embrace all the awkward moments that arise in life, and to just let them happen. By viewing them in this way, the awkwardness might even begin to dissipate as well. On this day people also share their awkward moments with others, which are sure to be a laugh.

How to Observe Awkward Moments Day

If an awkward moment arises today, embrace it! You could even try to cause a few awkward moments on purpose. The day can also be spent remembering all the awkward moments that have happened to you in the past. Share some of them with your family and friends, and have them share as well. Just sharing your stories might turn into a whole new awkward moment, and what could be more fitting than that?
