Fun Observances

Curious Events Day

Love conspiracy theories? Enjoy pondering about bizarre events that seem to have no explanations? Then Curious Events Day, a made-up holiday celebrated every year on October 9, is just the holiday you need to celebrate!

Crop circles in Italy.

While the origins of this curious holiday are unknown, we suspect that the creators of this day wanted people to stop worrying about the small things in life and focus their attention on all the inexplicable, baffling and peculiar mysteries of the world.

Small or Big Events

Life is full of curious events - big and small. Like for example, where do all those socks disappear to after doing laundry, or why do people open their mouths when applying mascara? Some mysteries have occupied curious and adventurous minds around the world. These include: Who made the stonehenge and for what purpose? Does Bigfoot exist and can ghosts communicate with humans? And then there are the bigger, more philosophical mysteries of life - like what happens when we die or what is what is beyond the edge of the universe?

How to Celebrate?

No matter what kind of curious events interest you, Curious Events Day is a holiday to spend some time being inquisitive about the world around you.

  • Read or watch documentaries about some of the more famous curious incidents and events that have happened in the history of humankind – disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle, sightings of the Yeti and the Loch Ness monster, crop circles, UFO sightings in Roswell.
  • Become a sleuth yourself and try to find explanations of curious events that intrigue you.

Did You Know...

...that the English language idiom curiosity killed the cat, means that getting curious and prying into other people's affairs can get one into trouble?






Q: What’s the technical name for a pot of coffee at work?

A: Break fluid


Q: If you call a large turkey a gobbler what do you call a small one?

A: Goblet.


When a Butterball Talk-Line staffer asked a caller what state her turkey was in (meaning how thawed was it) the caller responded with, “Florida.”


A gentleman called Butterball's Thanksgiving Turkey Talk-Line to tell the operator he cut his turkey in half with a chain saw and wanted to know if the oil from the chain would adversely affect the turkey.


One caller to Butterball's Thanksgiving Turkey Talk-Line had always cut the legs off the turkey before putting it in the oven, thinking that was how you had to cook a turkey. She later learned that the only reason her mom had been doing that was because their oven had been so small that that was the only way to get the bird into the oven!




After my three-year-old begged and begged, I gave in and 
let her attend a concert with her older sister and brother. As we 
took our seats, I handed programs 
to the kids.

Following the lead of her siblings, my three-year-old opened her program and announced,

“I’ll have the chicken.”






He eventually decided that people were too untrusting of this deal, so he changed the sign to read

"Fridge for sale $50".

The next day someone stole it.
