Technically, “National Goof Off Day” is celebrated on March 22nd….but in the spirit of saving that day for doing nothing special, we decided to publish the Vintage Unscripted tribute today.
So what’s the point of the day? Exactly what it sounds like. It’s the one day of the year when urban legend says you’re free to take a few hours to do whatever you’d like. We suggest you start the day with a rousing round of Double Dutch jump rope which is guaranteed to get your heart pumping. After that, why don’t you pack a picnic lunch and go to the park to feed the birds and people watch?
Weather not great? Never fear, we’ve got fun ways to goof off indoors. First on the list, curling up in your favorite chair to read a good book, followed by a long nap. Too tame? Then how about playing dress up or dolls with your kids? (Or all by yourself. We won’t tell). If your family is joining in the celebration, challenge them to a round of your favorite board games. Winner has to do the dishes…..tomorrow.
End the day in perfect fashion with the Snoopy Dance and rejoice in the fact that “National Goof Off Day, 2018” is just 364 days away.
