National Ass Day

If you’re a fan of this column, you know we celebrate all kinds of traditional and unusual holidays. A special day of the year is here and folks are ready to celebrate the occasion – no ifs, ands or “butts” about it! Don’t get left “behind”, folks. Oct. 17 is National Ass Day!

While the origins of this “holiday” are unknown, this bootilicious event celebrates the derriere. It seems everywhere you turn these days, bodacious bums are in the news. From Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Pippa Middleton, Sofia Vergara, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, curvaceous Gluteus Maximus’ are front-and-center in celeb photos, hot-and-steamy videos, songs and flicks. So what is up with men’s fascination with badonkadonks?

Today is the day to embrace the booty, celebrate the junk in the trunk and flaunt the backside.
