National Just Because Day August 27


Each year on August 27th it is National Just Because Day.  Feel free to celebrate this day any way you choose.  Just because!

Every day we all do things that are expected or required of us or because we have to. Well, on National Just Because Day, that does not apply.   This day is a chance to do something without rhyme or reason.

It could be that there is an outfit at the mall that you are admiring; buy it…just because.
Maybe you want to use a vacation day just to go fishing; do it…just because.
Perhaps you would like to pay the tab for the table next to you at your favorite restaurant; do it…just because.
Possibly you want to sing really loud while you’re in your car, by yourself, with your windows rolled down; do it…just because.
Surprise someone with flowers…just because!
Make something up…just because!
Or maybe, just maybe, do something just because Mom said so.  


Do something just because.  Enjoy some Jody’s Gourmet Popcorn…just because. Find all their delicious combinations at Jody’s Gourmet Popcorn just because. Use #NationalJustBecauseDay to post on social media.


Our research indicates that National Just Because Day was created by Joseph J. Goodwin of Los Gatos, CA, in the late 1950s.  It began as a family holiday and has grown into an annual celebration across the United States.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!

This is the day to go and do, that which you have always wanted to do, just because.
