Smoke And Mirrors Day is an annual celebration observed on March 29th of every year. The world we live in has many illusions, and we most often don’t see them clearly and the truth behind them. Those illusions cannot be explained in any way possible. It is an English phrase that describes all the things and actions that are deceptive, manipulative, and lack complete explanation. The phrase often refers to the way in which the magicians use all forms of distraction and makes sure the public over there fails to see what going on really. Over the years, the phrase has been used to refer to those people who used to put up smoke and mirrors and hide something. Thus, the day is created to celebrate this smart art of fraudulent activity.
“Having the right people around you all the time is important. I do take the acting seriously. But this is all fun. I look at it like smoke and mirrors. I still think it’s a dream, but I ain’t pinching myself yet.” – Chris Brown
