Today, Thursday, October 12 is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day. Frustrated individuals can celebrate the holiday by letting out the most piercing scream they can if they are angry and in an appropriate location.

The Aerican Empire, a micronation with no validity or reason to be recognized as a nation, supposedly founded the holiday to give its handful of citizens a day to relieve stress with a scream at approximately noon. International Moment of Frustration Scream Day is just one holiday among other equally silly holidays. The country was founded by 5-year-old Eric Lis, according to The Aerican Empire’s website.

Though the the holiday is of questionable legitimacy, everyone has frustrations that one may wish to let out with a yell.

Senior Mariela Medrano, after Hell Bowl, the rival football game against CKM, shared her frustration, “When Kennedy lost against McClatchy after three years of winning straight in a row I felt like screaming and kicking and throwing something.”

Sophomore BillieDee Scott recalled, “A time I was really frustrated was when my little brother was mocking me and I had to yell at him to tell him to stop, and he still didn’t stop, so I told my dad.”

Both students confirmed that they did indeed scream.

The Aerican Empire states that the screams should occur at around noon.
