Blame Someone Else Day
Blame Someone Else Day falls on the first Friday the 13th of every year. In 2015 it will be celebrated on February 13. Blame Someone Else Day is the day when you’re not to blame for anything; 24-hours of pointing your finger at someone else. History dates this momentous day to Anne Moeller of Clio, Michigan. According to legend, she started the trend in 1982 as an excuse for not keeping her appointments. According to the story, Anne’s alarm clock did not go off and she overslept. Her afternoon tardiness was quickly blamed on something else. If you find yourself celebrating this day and pointing your finger at someone else, we have some suggested reading just for you. However, if you find this day to be unappealing and not worth your time don’t blame me, someone else told me to write this.
