Why are you so grouchy?
It’s National Grouch Day! While the origin of this holiday is not confirmed, it is believed this holiday is in honor of everyone’s favorite Sesame Street grouch, Oscar!
What makes you grouchy? Perhaps the annoyingly chipper, or those full of false cheer? Morning traffic or the line at the coffee shop? We all have something that just pushes that button. Take a few sort minutes today to embrace your inner grouch. Just remember, tomorrow, you have no excuse and must return to your polite and kind self at least until next October 15th.
In 2010, there was a small study done showing that at age 52, grouchiness sets in. Check it out. http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/age-52-year-people-turn-grumpy-article-1.188790
If you are just too optimistic for this grouchy holiday, try to spread some cheer. Send a funny Grouch E-card, take part in random acts of kindness, smile at everyone you see, or just enjoy this silly Grouch Anthem!
