Taking place each year on the Sunday before Valentine's Day, Man Day is "a day for celebration by friends, family and associates of the men of the world." It is unknown why it is associated with Valentine's Day, but perhaps it is because there is a perception that Valentine's Day is geared more towards women and this way men get a day where the focus is on them.
Man Day is observed next on Sunday, February 9th, 2020. It has been observed the Sunday before February 14th since 2002.
How to Observe
Take part in Man Day by celebrating all the men in your life, whether they be your friends, family, or associates. Perhaps you could tell them something you like about them or give them a small gift. Man Day can be celebrated by everyone, no matter what their gender is. Besides celebrating the men in your life, you could read about some important men who helped shape history, or watch one of the best "guy movies."
