Founded in 1957 by brothers William D. and Harrison V. Chase, the annual journal features a wealth of information about anniversaries, holidays, special events, and both federal and state observances. The first version of the “Chase Calendar of Events” was created after many hours of event data collection; 2,000 copies of the 32-page document were released in 1958. It went for just one dollar. Chicago, Illinois-based Contemporary Books entered the picture in 1983 and assumed control of publication 1983.

After four years, the Chases stopped working on the compilation alone and turned it over to an internal team of researchers and editors. After then, the publishing saw a shift when Tribune purchased Contemporary Books in 1993. In September 2000, McGraw-Hill Companies purchased the company. From Rowman to McGraw-Hill to the Littlefield Publishing Group to the esteemed Bernan Press today.

Several humorous, lighthearted, and enjoyable holidays are listed on “Chase’s Calendar of Events,” including “National Have a Bad Day Day” (November 19), which encourages you to wish someone a “Have A Bad Day” rather than the overused traditional “Have A Good Day”; and “Satisfied Staying Single Day” (February 11), an annual empowerment event honoring the virtues of being a contented single person without the burden of a significant other or a relationship, among other things.

Why We Love My Way Day

It gives us a sense of empowerment.

Having an independent existence is a positive self-image enhancer. We assume greater responsibility for our acts and inactions, feel more capable of making decisions, and learn to trust our gut feelings and judgments more.

It motivates us to strive for our objectives.

Giving people a voice in our decisions causes us to lean in their direction. Living life on your terms empowers you to take initiative and concentrate, which in turn helps you reach your objectives.

It enables us to lead happy lives.

A life filled with regrets is undoubtedly a depressing one. Even when things don’t go as planned, we can feel more confident, content, and happy when we follow our aspirations, pursue new experiences, and make our own decisions.
