Upcoming Calendar Holidays

Ron Gordon is the man behind some of the weird "calendar holidays" you've seen on Neatorama, such as Square Root Day and Odd Day. We've had a lot of fun with those, and I've even won a couple of his contests. However, I received a notice that the next Odd Day is cancelled. Not the day, just the celebration.

       Odd Day has brought many smiles since our first celebration on 1/3/5.  But we unfortunately cannot change our dates, and the next is 9/11/13.  Hence, the very respectful silence for the day.  We will emerge in 2 years for 11/13/15, the final Odd Day of the century.

       We do, however, have some spectacular news on the math holidays front.  The new guy??  On 2/2/22 we celebrate Trumpet Day---just say it aloud---“to to to toooo!!”  Yes, it’s simple and funky, but folks really love it---see www.trumpetday.net    People are as happy to hear about it today as if it were on the calendar next month!

       We’ve also made significant progress on our trek toward the next Square Root Day—we’re now a bit closer to the next one (4/4/16) than to the last (3/3/9).  Be patient, we’ll get there!

       Odd Day for most of the world is November 9th (“hey diddle diddle, the month’s in the middle”).  We will change the website next month and, of course, will sponsor our contest (their final Odd Day---for 11/13/15 doesn’t work without a 13th month.)  thanks for your interest, see you in a couple years!!  Regards,  ron  :)

I'm glad he can keep up with all this, because I would totally miss those numbers. Link  -Thanks, Ron!

Seems like various websites have celebrated those, starting with 1/2/03, as I recall. And next year, 12/13/14 will be the last POSSIBLE such date this century, since there is no month 13.
