It's My Party Day
October 11 is It’s My Party Day, a great excuse to have a party for no reason at all! All you need to do is to invite all your friends and family to a fun party!
While the origins of this unofficial holiday are unknown, it is safe to say that it encourages people throwing a party to celebrate themselves.
How to Celebrate?
While one never needs a reason to have a party, It’s My Party Day is a great justification for throwing a bash just because you can! Here are some ways you can celebrate this fun holiday:
- Have a party of course! Send out invitations, decorate the venue, make all your favorite party foods, put on some fun music and let the party begin!
- Too tired to organize a party by yourself? What about meeting your friends at a restaurant or at the park? Who says parties have to be at home?

The 16th tee featured a fairway that ran along a road. The first golfer in a foursome teed off and hooked the ball. It soared over the fence and bounced onto the street, where it hit the tire of a moving bus and ricocheted back onto the fairway.
As they all stood in amazement, one of the golfer's friends asked, "How did you do that?"
The golfer shrugged. "You have to know the bus schedule."
