Marooned Without a Compass Day is today. Which direction will you take today?

How is your sense of direction? Do you often find yourself going around in circles? Do you feel hopelessly lost? Do you know where you are? If any of these questions describe your current state of being, then you are in tune to this special day.

As a Boy Scout leader, this author sees this special day as no problem at all. We'll just navigate the day (and night) by the position of the sun and the stars. We'll use our orienteering skills. And, we will check the trees for moss..... moss grows on the shaded, north side of a tree trunk.

Marooned without a Compass Day

Viewed in another way, being marooned without a compass for a day could be a good thing. Our busy life styles seldom leaves time to relax. We can just kick back and enjoy being marooned. Tomorrow, we can head east when the sun rises. In the meantime, I think I see a shady tree.....  

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.

Marooned without a Compass Day

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.

Happy Marooned Without a Compass Day!!!
