When it comes to wacky holidays, March 22 is one of the best days of the entire year. It's International Goof Off Day, also referred to as Goof Off Day and/or National Goof Off Day, an annual "holiday" that celebrates, well, goofing off.

Goof Off

Just think of the endless possibilities - no school, no job, no housework chores for an entire day! Yessir - it's time to hit the snooze and stay in bed all day long! Imagine curling up on the couch and watching a few of your favorite flicks with a few tasty treats and refreshing beverages. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, how about an all-day shopping spree with a few BFFs or a road trip to one of your all-time favorite places?

Today is the perfect day to kick up the ole' feet, sit back and relax. Just in case none of those scenarios tripped your trigger, why not try one or two of the following time-wasters on for size? What are you waiting for? Time's a-wastin!
