IF YOU’RE WONDERING WHY EVERYBODY IS SHOUTING AT YOU, IT’S BECAUSE TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY!


THERE ARE TWO DAYS A YEAR YOU CAN CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY!


Derek Arnold of Iowa first created this holiday in 2000. Arnold wanted to poke fun at how some people in western Europe and North America like to type in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You can celebrate this just-for-fun event annually on October 22.


IF YOU MISS THE ORIGINAL HOLIDAY IN OCTOBER, YOU CAN CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY ON JUNE 28! Billy Mays passed away that day in 2009. He was an iconic salesperson in infomercials known for his CAPS LOCK–style of enthusiasm. This second date was added to honor him.


So have fun today with your caps lock key—but don't go too wild with it. People on the internet today view all caps as shouting, and NOBODY LIKES TO BE YELLED AT!


WARMEST REGARDS,
Rita
