October 12: International Moment of Frustration Scream Day

You don’t really need any extra time to get ready to celebrate this holiday. October 12 is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day!

I don’t know how your life has been going lately, but I am more than ready to scream about some things in mine right now (I’m looking at you, insurance company!).

Celebrating this Moment of Frustration is simple: scream. Of course, a few precautions are probably in order. Don’t yell at someone, and, if there are people near enough to hear you, give them a bit of warning so they don’t start dialing 9-1-1 and running to save you. If you’re lucky, screaming like this may be so strange you’ll laugh at yourself and start feeling a bit better.

For the rest of the year, we have this proverb:

“A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man keeps himself under control.”

Proverbs 29:11
