International Day of Awesomeness
No doubt about it. Today is an absolutely awesome day! As we move towards spring, the weather is turning awesome. We feel awesome. And, we hope that you're feeling awesome, too.
It's no coincidence that March 10 was selected to celebrate awesomeness. Chuck Norris was born on this day. Norris is considered the quintessence of awesomeness.
Origin and History of International Day of Awesomeness
Kevin Lawver, a web application developer, and a bunch of his co-workers conceived this special day. Fred Maneiro, an intern at Lawver's company suggested that there should be a celebration for awesomeness. Lawver picked up on the idea, created the details around it, coined the day as National Day of Awesomeness, and promoted it on Twitter. The day quickly became global, and the name was appropriately changed to International Day of Awesomeness. Other co-workers, most notably Dan Lurie, also contributed in the development of this holiday.
The original slogan for the day "Because everyone needs an excuse to be
awesome", was created by Dan Lurie. Kevin Lawver's daughter later came up
with the slogan "No one's perfect, but everyone can be awesome."
