Get ready to put on your best "whiny voice" and celebrate National Whiners Day on December 26! This unique holiday was created in the 1980s by Reverend Kevin Zaborney as a way to encourage people to let out their frustrations and complaints. So instead of holding it all in, take this day as an opportunity to vent and maybe even have a good laugh about it. Plus, it's a great reminder to appreciate what we have and not take things for granted. So go ahead and whine away – just for this one day!
