When : Always June 18th

It's National Splurge Day, oh Yeah!

There are certain dates on the calendar that you look forward to with great excitement. You mark the date and wait in eager anticipation. For me, National Splurge Day is one of those very special days.

National Splurge Day is a day to treat yourself excessively, to anything you want. And, to excess if you desire. Isn't that a great thing? Maybe, you're on a diet, and that special dessert is too many calories. Maybe, you want to buy a steak, and the budget is a little tight. Toss out the reservations, and go for it today.

Celebrate this day to the fullest degree. Treat yourself to whatever you want and to excess . For, this is a day to splurge. Do so without worry or concern...until tomorrow.

Being a diabetic, I think that I will skip this one this year. I haven't been able to keep my blood sugar level very well. Besides I have a Dr. appointment coming up.

The Origin of Splurge:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. Do you think some Splurge in congress would spend time and energy to make this a national day?
