Annually on July 8, people across the country celebrate National Savor the Comic, Unplug the Drama Day, also known as National SCUD Day.  This day was created as a day to put aside any and all of the drama in your life and learning more about working and living with humor and laughter and living in drama-free zones.  Today, step back and enjoy relaxation and humor and then watch the physical and mental benefits that you will receive from it.

NATIONAL SCUD DAY HISTORY
