National Just Because Day....August 27

Each year on August 27, it is National Just Because Day.  Why?  Just because!  It began in 2005 as a chance to do something without a rhyme or reason.  What is reason?  Reason is the ability the human mind has to form and operate on concepts in abstraction, in an ordered and usually goal-oriented manner.  Every day we all do things that are expected or required of us.  Well on Just Because Day, that does not apply.

Some days you may get a strange impulse to do something that as Spock would say is "illogical." Hence you don't do it.  But on Just Because Day, logic does not apply.  There may be an outfit at the mall that you are admiring; buy it...just because!

Maybe you want to use a vacation day to come to the library and read your favorite book; do it...just because!

Perhaps you'd like to pay forward for someone when you're in the drive-through line; do it...just because!

Sing really loud while you're in the car the song you downloaded from Freegal with the windows rolled down; do it...just because!

Surprise someone with their favorite book, movie or music; do it...just because!

You want to walk backwards down the hallway; do it...just because!

Do something different, out of the ordinary, something that you do not have to do but just want to do, that is what Just Because Day is all about.
