Marooned Without a Compass Day

Marooned Without a Compass Day is celebrated on November 6th of each year.  The staff at National Whatever Day were unable to discover the origin of Marooned Without a Compass Day.

Being marooned is not the best thing in the world that could happen to anyone.  According to Marriam Webster, to be marooned is to be put ashore on a desolate island or coast and leave to one’s fate OR to place or leave in isolation or without hope of ready escape.  Pirates were known to do this to crew who disobeyed orders.

We can only imagine that Marooned Without a Compass Day came from the question most people will be asked at least once in their life.  “If you were lost on a desert island, what would you want with you?”  This question has numerous variations, you can only select one item, you can select three items, or it can only be a person.

Go ahead and celebrate by asking all your friends what they would do if they were marooned without a compass.
