What is Day of the Obscure?

L Day of the Obscure condemns the depressing hero-worship of unreachable paragons like Martin Luther King and George Washington.   We will never be like them; why celebrate only the famous?  No more fireworks and Presidential Declarations.

K Day of the Obscure is the Holiday for Normal, Obscure People.  It's celebrated on the third Tuesday or Wednesday of March by doing or visiting something obscure (which you can read more about in the FAQ).

J Day of the Obscure celebrates the lesser-known, the hard-to-find, the Obscure.  Face it, you're never going to be famous.  Why fret about it?  Celebrate people like yourself, who didn't amount to much.
