Toss the list and give up: Celebrate Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day

See also

Today is an unusual holiday that some may take to heart while others will ignore since they really do intend to follow through with their plans, goals and resolutions.

Each year many Americans and people from other countries make a list of goals they want to achieve throughout the year. This list is filled with items we refer to as resolutions. Many are reasonable while others can be quite far-fetched.

Today, January 17 is the day to celebrate this strange holiday called “Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day”! Imagine a day that is designed to ditch that list. It must be because others as well as we don’t have much faith in the list that was written up just a few weeks earlier.

If you did accomplish some of the items on your list, congratulations! If not, no need to worry because today gets you off the hook. No more list hanging over your head, no need to feel bad that your resolutions have been broken or already given up upon.

Celebrate and toss your list and have a happy “Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day”!
