Get ready to go bananas because today we are celebrating World Monkey Day!
While we’re really not sure how this unofficial holiday originated, according to timeanddate.com the likely reason suggests “that it started as a prank by some college students, while others suggest that it was started by people who wanted to raise awareness about monkeys, their habitats, and their role in the environment.”
Both reasons sound plausible, and I’m just glad we get to celebrate these highly intelligent, lovable, and fun to watch animals.
