R5 Lesser-Known Holidays Taking Place in May

May 2: Great American Grump Out • Founded 11 years ago by Floridian Janice Hathy, the date is a challenge for all “sourpusses” to refrain from grumping, frowning, grousing, complaining, punching, slapping, hitting, or killing—for one whole day. (smilemania.com)

May 11: Eat What You Want Day • ’Nuff said! Yes, for some of us, this is a year-round observance, which is why there’s also a National Bike to Work Day on May 18 and a Senior Health & Fitness Day on May 30.

May 12: National Hug Your Cat Day • Sponsored by Purina, the day is designed to remind everyone that our cats need a little loving, too.

May 16: National Sea Monkey Day • Honoring a childhood rite of passage, National Sea Monkey Day celebrates everyone’s favorite just-add-water instant life form. (seamonkeyworship.com)

Bean-counters, Zen-lovers, those who proverbially walk on eggshells, and those with aural faculty issues should take note: May also is International Audit Month, National Meditation Month, Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month, and National Better Hearing and Speech Month.
