About the Holiday

Hermit Day is a day to spend time in solitude. Go out of your way to be alone today. HuffingtonPost.com's article titled Alone: 7 Reasons Solitude Can Be Good For You mentions that one of the biggest benefits is that it can boast your creativity. According to IFC (which is part of the AMC network) the top 3 most famous celebrity recluses include Howard Hughes, Greta Garbo, and Syd Barrett. The entire list may be seen at Most Famous Celebrity recluses

Merriam-Webster.com defines a hermit as "one that retires from society and lives in solitude especially for religious reasons". So today get away from it all. Retreat someplace for quiet seclusion and alone time.
