When: Always December 8th
Give an ear to this day.............
Take it in the Ear Day is a bizarre day of unknown origin. Our research found absolutely no documentation about the origin of this day. And, we have not uncovered any information around the meaning or purpose of this day. Yet, references to this day on bizarre and fun calendars abound.
Perhaps December 8th was without a holiday or day of celebration. Perhaps, someone created it because they were having a rough day. Or, maybe, just maybe, the word ear was misspelled. (We won't go there)
Well, in any event, however and whatever you want to take to your ear.... we hope you thoroughly enjoy Take it in the Ear Day!!!
