World Lazy Day (20/08)

In 1984, an unusual holiday was born in Colombia, which found support in the hearts of millions of people from different countries, becoming worldwide, despite the lack of official status. It is called World Laziness Day.

At first glance, laziness is one of the most unpleasant human vices. However, in the case of the holiday, the organizers dubbed it so, of course, as a joke. We are talking about a completely natural human need for rest.

Laziness as a psychological state, manifested in the lack of desire to work, overcome difficulties, display strong-willed efforts and, preferably, spend free time, often becomes neglected. It was then that it is regarded by society as a vice, since many everyday worries that require the participation of a person prone to laziness fall on the shoulders of others.
