On March 22, it's time to celebrate As Young As You Feel Day! This special day celebrates feeling young at heart no matter what age you are. The idea of this day was first introduced in the 1950s movie by the same name, which featured a 65-year-old man who just didn't feel his age. Since then, this special day has been celebrated to remind us that we should all strive for an ageless attitude and enjoy life like we're still kids. So start getting creative and show yourself that age is just a number!
