Ask a Stupid Question Day!

Yes, can you believe it, there is even a day for asking a "Stupid Question" and that is today! Huh...

I always thought, who the hell comes up with all such 'Stupid days'?, haha, I guess this might be my stupid question for the day. The hype for such days started with Valentines Day and later came Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Grandparents Day and what not.

Taken our culture, I think that there is no need for all such days. Its because we do not need a specific day to thank/to show love to our parents or the person whom we love. We always do it and we can always spend some time for them when needed or when ever we can.

Coming to my initial question, Who the hell creates such 'days'?

These "Days" are created by companies, special interest groups, sports teams, and not to forget the major contributor the greeting card companies(including Ecards) by simply declaring it so.

It seems some of these "days" are created because there isn't anything going on a particular day, and the card companies need something for every day of the year to keep their business running. The vast majority of these are local, one-time events that do not capture much attention and are soon forgotten. Official or not, a number of these take hold, and show up year after year.
At least one individual or company has created a number of humorous "days". They created the day, copyrighted it (believe it or not, it's true), and then wrote a book describing them. These "days" were created simply for profit.

Let us have some insight on, Origin of Ask a Stupid Question Day:

The roots of this special day goes back to the 1980's. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule.Teachers created this day on September 28, If it fell on a weekend, they would celebrate it on the last day of the month.

Check out some weirdest days that are celebrated:
