Serendipity Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on August 18

You are so lucky! Whether you realize it or not, it is a stroke of serendipity that you arrived at this webpage, as today is Serendipity Day. Think of it as a blessing in disguise, as you can expect unexpected events to occur today. And, they will be happy events.


The word "Serendipity " was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. He took it from a Persian fairy tale "The Three Princes of Serendip". It was written over 1,000 years ago. According to the Miriam-Webster Dictionary, Serendipity is: "the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for". Serendipity is not fate. It's similar to luck. Perhaps best of all, serendipity can occur each and every day of your life!


When you think about it, serendipity comes from a positive, uplifting attitude and lifestyle. If you think positive, good things, unexpected things can and will happen. Importantly, if we are thinking positive, we are most likely subconsciously looking for serendipity. With a positive attitude, we will recognize serendipity each time if occurs.


I hope you really benefit from Serendipity Day. As for me, I'm anxiously awaiting winning the lottery today. Now, where did I put that ticket!?

Today's Quote: " Sometimes life drops in your lap blessings without your lifting a finger. They call this serendipity." - - Charlton Heston

History and Origin of Serendipity Day:

This holiday was created in 2010 by Madeline Kay, the Serendipity Lady. Madeline created this day to "Dare to dream, expect the best, and to pursue your passion." She goes on to say that serendipity is no accident. Rather, it is an attitude or lifestyle where you reach for the unexpected and for happy surprises.
