January 1 – National Z Day

Posted on January 1, 2015

The first day of the New Year is a perfect day to celebrate all things that start with the last letter of the alphabet!!

So said Tom Zager, who found himself at the bottom of almost every list because his last name starts with “Z.” Today is designed to be one of those “the first shall go last, and the last shall go first” days!

So...grab all the Zoes and Zachs in your life and head to the zoo—and don't forget to visit the zebras. Brush off your zither and learn a chord or two. Celebrate one of the biggest inventions in math: the zero. Zone out with zombie movies or books, or maybe with music by the Zombies. Buy zinnia seeds to plant in the spring, learn about Zambia and Zimbabwe, decorate your walls with a zig-zag trim or your ceiling with a glow-in-the-dark zodiac, read about Zen Buddhism, and wear clothes with big, bold zippers! Tonight, of course, you'll want to catch plenty of Zzzzs.

What will you do on National Z Day?

Did you know...?

  • In America, the letter “Z” is pronounced zee, but in England it is pronounced zed. The latter comes from the Greek and Latin zeta.
  • Z” is the most rarely letter in written English – especially in nations that follow British spelling customs. This is because words like organization, analyze, and economize are spelled in the U.K. this way: organisation, analyse, and economise.
