Today’s events include:
Today’s focus: Be Nasty Day
I have been unable to find an origin for this day. Other sites that record it have noted the same with their research.
On the surface, it seems strange to set aside an event for negativity. Perhaps it is intended to get it out of your system on this day so as to avoid being nasty throughout the rest of the year?
At any rate, if you do decide to embrace this day, please remember that there is a significant difference between being nasty and being cruel. Try not to burn any bridges today!
Bonus: For Pancake Day, there are places that offer free pancakes or where pancake sales fund different charities. Do an internet search to find such places in your area. The link above describes such an arrangement offered by IHOP.
Daily Trivia: Acronyms are said like words, while initialisms are individual letters. For example, NATO is an acronym and FBI is an initialism.
