Today, if you want to, you are allowed to whine about… being too tired, over eating, having to go back to work, having so much to clean up,  the long lines in the return aisle at the store and etc. as it is National Whiners Day, which is celebrated each year on December 26.  (On this day, hopefully the whining is limited and not taken to the extreme.)

There is one thing that the creator of this day had hopes that the people across the country would not be whining about;  today is not intended to whine about what you did not get for Christmas and what you do not have but to remember all that you do have.

Whining Zone pic 1There are many people that are less fortunate; some are struggling to put food on the table or a roof over their heads, some may not have family and friends, some may not have had one gift under the tree, some may be fighting disease and illnesses and some may have all of these.  You may want to whine about something (and today you are allowed) but remember to be thankful for each gift you did receive and all that you do have.  (and help others when you can)


Rev. Kevin Zaborney created National Whiners Day in 1986 in hopes of encouraging people to be thankful for what they have instead of being unhappy “whining” about what they do not have.
