October 25: Sourest Day

I’m not sure who is responsible for starting this holiday, but they’ve definitely got a strange sense of humor. On October 25, a few days after Sweetest Day, the pessimists of the world get their moment in the sun for Sourest Day.

Just like Sweetest Day, Sourest Day celebrations should definitely involve food – lemons, grapefruits, sour candies, and the like. Then, I suggest eating this terrifically sour food with friends so you can all make those twisted grimaces together. In fact, you might want to take a look at this video where some babies get their first taste of lemon!

“In those days people will no longer say,

‘The parents have eaten sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’

Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes—their own teeth will be set on edge.”

Jeremiah 31:30
