You’ve probably heard the phrase, “There is no such thing as a stupid question.” It is said in order to encourage people to ask questions they have been reluctant to ask because they themselves perceive them to be stupid. Chances are, if the questions are asked, they do end up sounding pretty stupid. People often laugh at those who ask the questions, and the inquirer feels embarrassed. Well, the embarrassment melts away today, and the questions are asked freely because it is Ask a Stupid Question Day.
A few sources claim the day was created sometime in the 1980s by a group of teachers, at a time when teachers were trying to get students to ask more questions in the classroom. Fittingly, the holiday is usually celebrated by students and teachers, and the aim of the day is particularly focused on getting kids to ask more questions in school. Because the day is about asking questions in school, it isn’t always celebrated on September 28. It is never celebrated on a weekend, and is sometimes celebrated on the last school day of September. This is often on September 30, the last day of the month.
Ask a Stupid Question Day, also known as National Ask a Stupid Question Day, is being observed today! It has always been observed the last weekday of September.
