How April 14th became a 'holiday'

How April 14th became a 'holiday'

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - For the third year in a row, some people joined in to lampoon America's penchant for national holidays.

I originally did it as a reaction to National Siblings Day, National Nursing Assistants Day and National Postage Stamp Day. I thought, there's bound to be something they've forgotten!

"Non-Traditional Moustache Day" occurs the day before everyone files their federal taxes as a way to blow off stress from filling in the blanks on the tax forms.

I tried to think of something that would be easy to accomplish and fun to look at for my Facebook friends.

Well over the years, the participants have been young and old. There is no particular demographic, and the "stashes" are always cheaply produced.

That's almost a requirement. It should look tacky and kitschy.

You'll find a slide show of past years, and if you'd like to send a new entry, maybe your own moustache selfie, send it to
