Get ready to let out a big "phew!" and celebrate National Fart Day on February 5th! This hilariously unconventional holiday was created to embrace the natural bodily function of farting. Did you know that the average person farts about 14 times a day? Farting is also known by many names such as flatulence, passing gas, or breaking wind. While it may not be the most glamorous topic, this day reminds us to laugh at ourselves and find humor in the everyday things. So go ahead, embrace your inner goofball and join in on the fart-filled fun!
