National Unfriend Day

As per Jimmy Kimmel, today is National Unfriend Day. The day you go through your facebook friends and trim the fat. Got a friend with annoying status updates? Delete. Someone keep inviting you to take care of imaginary crops because he/she is way too lazy to do it alone? Gone. That girl you went to high school with who constantly rubs it in her social networks face that she’s engaged and you’re not? ..why didn’t you get rid of that one sooner?

Consider this your civic duty. And because no holiday is a real holiday unless it has a Peanuts special, I present to you: “It’s National Unfriend Day Charlie Brown.”

And, to show you how much traction this holiday is getting. Here’s the National Unfriend Anthem from Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley.. with these lyrics, I think they really capture the spirit of the day.

This could very well be my new favorite day.


Do you have people you could stand to lose on facebook? I’m thinking yes, definitely yes.

Happy deleting!
