If waffles get a day, shoelaces get a day and hugging your cat gets a day, why shouldn’t repeating things get a day? I said why shouldn’t repeating things get a day?

Wednesday, June 3, is National Repeat Day. The origin of this quirky ‘holiday’ is unknown according to the National Days Calendar. But there are many suggestions on how to celebrate it.

Play your favorite song two times (sing along both times)
Call your mom twice and say the exact same things (depending on her age she may not even catch on)
Say “thank you” twice.
Wrap a gift. Twice.

Some specific Jersey ideas I have would be elect a corrupt politician. Twice.
Pay the same toll, twice. (I’ve done this on the Parkway when those damn baskets wouldn’t register and I didn’t want the citation in the mail.)
Complain about your property taxes twice.
Get a slice on the boardwalk twice.

Here’s a bonus one. Watch the movie Groundhog Day. Twice.


GETTING NJ BACK TO BUSINESS: LIVE, THURSDAY at 7 p.m.: Eric Scott welcomes state Senate President Steve Sweeney into the studio to take your feedback on how to help local NJ businesses as they restart and grow their operations, after shutdowns due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. More information here.


This stupid and totally made-up holiday has never once been celebrated by anybody I’m sure. So let me be the first to say Happy Repeat Day, Happy Repeat Day!
