History of National Goof Off Day
The National Goof Off Day has been in celebration since the year 1976. Monica (Moeller) Dufour of Davison Mi along with her grandfather, William D. Chase has created this special fun celebration day. Since then this Goof-Off Day has been celebrated and is also sometimes called as the International Goof Off Day. Moeller was a young 10-year-old girl when she has come up with this Day. The idea for this Day had come up when she was listening to her grandfather who is speaking on a radio station and encouraging people to call with ideas for his Chases’ Calendar. On hearing this, Moeller has got a view to celebrating the Goof Off Day as she was goofing off by calling him by disguising her voice.
Thus she called her grandpa and conveyed her idea without identifying herself to him. William said that is a great idea indeed. By the next day, she has confessed to him that it was her who called in about Goof Off Day. To her surprise, her grandpa smiled and showed the local newspaper which mentioned a need for a Goof Off Day. The Goof Off Day is the perfect time just about everybody can relax, enjoy and goof off. The Day encourages all of us to take some time on this day to be little silly, relax, and do useless things. You can even do unproductive things for fun and take a break from your regular work until the next day. Do something a bit different unlike the other days like wasting an hour or two.
So stop your routine, take a break from it to find and feel something different as it the best time. Goofing off or to goof off is an expression or is a slang term most popularly used in the United States. The term is often used to refer those who are interested in the recreational or an idle pastime while neglecting the duties of work or society. Goof Off is an expression that refers to the act of doing something in an unproductive way while neglecting all the actual and important work. Goof off refers to a person who engages in such acts.
