When : Always March 9th
Try to stay calm. Take a deep breath. For today is Panic Day. Can you handle today? Good, we were worried for a moment.
Hopefully, everything is going just swell in your life, and you have no need for this day. But, if problems and troubles are looming, try to hold off hitting the panic button until this day arrives.
Don't worry. Don't fret. and, above all, don't panic. However, if ever there was a day to panic, today is that day.
As you get through this unsettling day, you have another day to worry about.......International Panic Day, June 18.
Origin of "Panic Day":
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Perhaps they were too rushed and panicked to record their creation.
