News!: in version 1.9 of WackyDays, you can upgrade for a low price to remove ads and get extra features (SEARCH and social network SHARING) in the Google Play version. Tap MENU/UPGRADE to get it!

Looking for something to celebrate? How about Increase Your Psychic Powers Day? Or National Bologna Day? WackyDays is an app & widget to show unusual, bizarre and funny "holidays", plus tips & lots more. It's great for educators and a good conversation starter. The current version focuses on US "holidays", but is amusing for people worldwide.


WackyDays is an ad supported app and therefore requests INTERNET and COARSE_LOCATION permissions for serving mobile ads in the app.

NOTE: since some days in the year have no clear "Wacky Day", or have one but it's copyrighted, we totally made up a handful of the "holidays" and they are clearly marked in the app as "unofficial". (e.g. October 7th - "Android Day (unofficial)")
