How to Celebrate
The idea behind Goof Off Day is to celebrate through old fashioned fun and silliness. Today is a day to take some time to set aside the seriousness of day-in and day-out drudgery. Do something different today that is fun and relaxing. You can play some board games, video games, or sports games. You can have a trash can basketball contest with your co-workers with crumpled paper basketballs. When was the last time you made a paper airplane? When was the last time you threw it and then altered it to see if it would fly a greater distance?
To honor this day we are featuring the Fanta Orange soda can from South Africa from the 1980s featuring Disney’s Goofy. Goofy was first created in 1932 as a clumsy, yet clever friend of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. On this can, Goofy is seen being nothing other than himself by standing on his hands.
Happy Goof Off Day (3/22)!
