📜 History of Pandemonium Day

During the 17th century, the word “pandemonium” first appears in John Milton’s epic poem “Paradise Lost,” which retells the biblical account of Adam and Eve and their temptation by Satan. It is a combination of the Latin word “daemonium,” which means “demon,” and the Greek word “pan,” which means “all.” Pandemonium, the center of hell in Paradise Lost, is where all of the devils reside.

Today, however, pandemonium refers to anything disorderly, unexpected, and chaotic and doesn’t carry the same ominous overtones. This is a fantastic day to break all the rules if you feel like you’re in a rut and your life is too regimented, scheduled, monotonous, and predictable. Let’s face it: we’ve all had the idea that “There’s something I’d really like to do, but it just seems too crazy for me.” The best part about Pandemonium Day is that it encourages us to act anyway. So abandon your plans, skip your appointments, let go of your expectations, and keep reading to learn how to have a crazy Pandemonium Day.

Remember that while it is acceptable to act irrationally and wildly on Pandemonium Day, it shouldn’t go too far. As long as it doesn’t interfere with someone else’s life, you can break the law. The key is to not let other people decide how you should recognize your own individuality.

Read Up on Chaos Theory
