National Grouch Day

While it's clear that some on this forum don't need a special day to be grouchy, it's nice to have a day to celebrate their "grouchiness" and let them be the best grouch they can be. This is for all of you grouches out there:


National Grouch Day on October 15th sends out notices to all the grouches of the world to be their truest grouch. If you are a grouch today is your special day. According to Sesame Street Magazine, the day was created for all grouches to celebrate their way of life. 

Sometimes grumps give backhanded compliments. “Your house looked horrible until you painted it.” Other times they don’t give them at all. Noise, silence, general activity will make a grouch generally unpleasant. 

As per the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a grouch is described as:

  • a person who complains frequently or constantly
  • a habitually irritable or complaining person

It seems that a grouch may be happy (although they would never admit it) only when others are unhappy and grouchy. It is then that they feel most comfortable with having others share in their grumpy, cantankerous, surly world with them.

National Grouch Day would be a good time to send a grouch e-card and then ask a friend, whether they be a grouch or not, to come on over, sit back, share some popcorn, relax and watch the movie Grumpy Old Men!


This Sesame Street-inspired holiday has been celebrated since at least 1976 and celebrates the grouch’s way of life. 

Can you think of anyone you would send an e-grouch card to? Do it!! Do you think you should look in your mailbox to see if YOU got any e--grouch cards?

    WC couldn't make it on this board long enough to celebrate his very own day.
