On February 15, SpongeBob fans celebrate Annoy Squidward Day. If you are unfamiliar with Squidward, he is a co-worker of SpongeBob who is always impatient, arrogant, condescending and feels unsatisfied.
This holiday was invented after the release of an episode called “Employee of the Month” in the late 90s. The “SpongeBob SquarePants” series is all about the adventure of SpongeBob and his buddies who live in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom together.
In the episode, the fictional character Squidward became annoyed by SpongeBob at work, therefore, he announced it is “Annoy Squidward Day.” After hearing this, SpongeBob annoyed Squidward even more by pointing out to the calendar and correcting him that this holiday is actually on February 15.
After that, many SpongeBob lovers started to celebrate this holiday in real life. Ever since the late 90s, the “SpongeBob SquarePants” became one of the longest-running shows on Nickelodeon.
