Festival of Popular Delusions Day
On June 6, 1944, we’ll commemorate D-Day, the day Allied forces landed in Normandy. On the previous day, the Germans wrongly believed no invasion would occur due to poor weather conditions. This was the first Festival of Popular Delusions Day, “celebrating the anniversary of the last time before D-Day the Germans thought they had a good shot at taking over the world,” according to News Times.
The holiday is not to be taken too seriously. Festival of Popular Delusions Day is a good day to align our own beliefs with facts and reality. If you know someone who has delusions about proper work attire, a cheating spouse or their credit card debt, have a chat. Some delusions are more serious and could be symptoms of a mental disorder.
