Take a Wild Guess Day
? ? ?
Date When Celebrated: This holiday event is always held on April 15
In case you haven't guessed, today is Take a Wild Guess Day. Today is all about trusting your gut and your instinct. Today, factual or empirical data are useless and unnecessary, before opening your mouth. Does the thought of taking a wild guess without any information to back you up, take you out of your comfort zone? .....Good, very good.
Taking a wild guess is like taking a stab in the dark. Often you don't have any information or facts, but you feel compelled to take a wild guess at a perplexing question or issue. If you are expected to know the answer, taking a wild guess is at the risk of embarrassment and ridicule, if you guess wrong.
The lucky ones among us, are those that have a good intuition, a feeling, or a kind of sixth sense. Many of us don't possess these traits. You could say providing the correct response is pure luck. Perhaps, perhaps not.
Take a Wild Guess Day encourages us to throw away the inhibitions that are holding us back. Throw caution to the wind, step out of your comfort zone and take a chance that you'll know the right answer or thing to say.
When it comes to guessing, perhaps Mae West said it best: "Don't keep a man guessing too long - he's sure to find the answer somewhere else."
Today's Play on Words: Turning Vegan would be a big missed steak.
On this day, you are encouraged to take a guess, at every opportunity you get. Creating and playing a guessing game, is another good way to participate in this holiday.
History and Origin of "Take a Wild Guess Day"
This holiday event was created in 2010 by Jim Barber, a professional public speaker and instructor. According to Barber, he recognized that this was the day when Federal taxes were due. And, he noticed that many people guessed on their tax form inputs. Wow, that's wild.
This holiday event was originally called "Take a Wild Guess Day". It wasn't until around 2017, that a few websites began to call it "National Take a Wild Guess Day". We do not believe this was initiated by the author.
We did not find any presidential proclamation or an act of congress making this a true "National " day.
