Mark your calendars folks, because there's an awesome new holiday that you won't want to miss this year.
Each year on March 10th, the most awesome people from around the world will be celebrating the International Day of Awesomeness. Yes, you read that correctly.
This epic holiday was established to celebrate every person, place, thing, and idea in the world that are awesome and often go unnoticed. And as the holiday's official tagline points out, “No one’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome.”
The holiday was created by Kevin Lawver back in 2007, after an intern named Freddie Maneiro suggested that the office should celebrate Lawver’s awesomeness. Lawver replied that instead there should be an International Day of Awesomeness to celebrate everyone else instead. He posted the idea to Twitter and the rest was history.
So what started off as an annual holiday has now turned into an international event. To make this holiday even more awesome, March 10th just so happens to be the birthday of an awesome actor by the name of Chuck Norris. Coincidence? I think not.
We live in a world where we're constantly so busy and we often don't have the time to stop and appreciate how awesome our lives truly are. So on March 10th, the Yo Sox team suggests spending the day celebrating everything that makes life so awesome.
Whether that means visiting someone you haven't seen in awhile that you think is awesome, checking out an awesome new restaurant that you've been dying to try, or even rocking a pair of awesome socks from Yo Sox, there's so many ways to celebrate this fun holiday.
