Weird Holidays that you could make fun bets out of

While most people are familiar with classic celebrations like Christmas and Halloween, a host of lesser-known holidays offer the perfect opportunity to place some fun bets with a little friendly competition.

From National Nothing Day to International Talk Like a Pirate Day, these quirky holidays will keep you, your friends and family guessing. So if you’re ready to mix things up this holiday season, grab your favorite betting partner and explore the wild and wacky world of weird holidays!

Here are 4 weird and unique national holidays from around the world that you could make kickass bets out of :

International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19) 🏴‍☠️

This quirky holiday encourages people to talk like a pirate, dress up like a pirate, and celebrate pirate culture. An opportunity to let out your inner Captain Jack Sparrow.

Possible Bet: I bet that Elon Musk will dress up as a pirate and tweet a picture on September 19th .

La Tomatina (August 31) 🍅

This Spanish festival involves a giant tomato fight in the streets of Buñol, Valencia. Some people have snowball fights and others have tomato fights but as long as everyone is happy and safe, you can’t tell the difference.

Possible Bet: I bet that La Tomatina day won’t be celebrated in the streets of Buñol on August 31.

Extraterrestrial Cultural Day (February 14) 👽

Extraterrestrial Culture Day is meant to “celebrate and honor all past, present, and future extraterrestrial visitors in ways to enhance relationships among all citizens of the cosmos, known and unknown.

Possible Bet: I bet that NASA will contact and confirm extraterrestrial life by the end of 2023.

National Nothing Day (January 16) 💤

This holiday encourages people to do absolutely nothing and to take a break from the stresses of daily life. No, we’re not talking about those lazy Sundays when you just want to have a cold beer and sleep all day. We’re talking about a holiday that lets you do nothing but chill.

Possible Bet: I bet that Elon Musk won’t tweet from his account on January 16.

The betting possibilities with IBY are limitless (as long as it can be verified at least) and you can take advantage of this with something as simple as Private betting on events that could happen during the holidays.
