Happy Repeat Day! Happy Repeat Day!

Have you ever wished you could have a do-over? Well, today is the day you get the chance because it's Repeat Day. Repeat Day is always observed on June 3rd and you celebrate by doing something you like over and over again. The origins of this day are unknown, but suffice it to say it was probably created by someone who enjoyed repetition or a Mom of a toddler who feels like everyday is Repeat Day.

Since I think every day should be celebrated I love it when I discover a fun, and sometimes silly, way to celebrate. I think I'll celebrate by watching the 1993 film, Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie Macdowell. Then watch it again.



What would you like to repeat today? Are you a fan of this 1993 film classic? Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a time loop like Bill Murray?

I have never heard of repeat day! Hmm, I have a list of things to do today that are not repeats (involves getting passports for two of my kids). What will I pick to repeat? I shall have to ponder . . .

I loved that movie when it came out.

There's nothing today that I would want to repeat. Hmmm. Maybe I'll buy a very yummy dessert and get to repeat eating that.

Oh I can't stand movies like Groundhog Day or plots where the mc gets caught in a time loop. But this is a neat day if you get to do something that you love, over and over again. There are so many things I wish I could do....

Love Ground Hog Day! What would I do if I could repeat days? I would probably have ten books published by now.

Groundhog Day is a great movie.
I know what I want to repeat today! (Yes, I did say that out loud.)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I never heard of Repeat Day. I guess I'll watch The Prince of Persia tonight. It's an exciting 'do over' film.

Nicole said...

Never heard of repeat day. Can we repeat naps? ;)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Now I have to think of something fun to repeat!

Sheila, getting passports sounds like you're going to travel somewhere worth repeating. Have a great time.

Stina, the idea of two desserts is worth repeating!

Elise, I like watching time loops, but never want to be in one. Although household chores feels like I'm stuck in a time loop.

Stephen, me, too!

Hmm, Alex, one can only wonder...

Susan, that is a good 'do over' film.

Nicole, naps are always worth repeating.

I love GroundhogDay! We watch it every year on groundhog day.

Scribbles From Jenn said...

L.Diane, go for it! I think I'll have dessert, take a nap and do it again.

I've never heard of Repeat Day either. Some people might want to repeat parties that were lots of fun. I'd probably like to repeat riding my horse in shows. She was great fun and so talented.

Jo said...

I enjoyed Groundhog Day once, that's it thanks.

There are many things I would love to repeat, some of which I cannot really mention on here, although I wouldn't mind repeating a few delectable meals I have eaten over the years. Mind you that would undo my recent weight loss.

I love that movie!!!! What a great way to celebrate. I'm knitting and blogging and thinking about my novel and some of the sci-fi concepts. A particular day I'd like to repeat is any day spent on the Chesapeake Bay as a kid growing up...preferably one of the days when Dad forgot to worry about the time and just kept sailing.

I haven't watched that movie in forever. I haven't watched that movie in forever.

Julie Flanders said...

I've never heard of this day before. How fun. I will have to remember it next June. :)

Scribbles From Jenn said...

Deanie, I never thought about parties, but there are a few I'd like to repeat.

Jo, yes, repeating meals and not gaining weight sounds awesome!

Tina, if I could I'd repeat your day, too.

Thanks, Yvonne.

Regina, haha, I almost did that for a comment. Love the movie Groundhog Day.

Julie, it is a fun day.
