Full disclosure- EVERY day is Don’t Make Your Bed Day at my house. There are several reasons for this, one of the biggest being that I consider it a profound waste of time.
Apparently I’m not the only one. A fifth grade student in New Mexico named Shannon Barba actually wrote her Congressman asking that December 21st be named Don’t Make Your Bed Day because she was very sick of making her bed and presumed others felt the same way. While not a national holiday quite yet, I like her thought process and her initiative to make something happen.
So, today you can join me, Shannon, and smart people everywhere by not making your bed. You’re just going to get back into it tonight anyway!
