The unofficial holiday encourages people to take a different look at upheavals and changes in their lives. It also inspires celebrators to find ways to take a pause from the daily grunt and to bring order and equilibrium in their lives.

From Paradise Lost

The word pandemonium, meaning a place of confusion or turmoil, comes from English poet John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost. First published in 1667, the epic was a collection of 10 books. In the poem, Pandæmonium or Pandemonium is the capital of Hell. Pandemonium comes from the Greek word, pan meaning all, and daimonion, meaning inferior gods.

How to Celebrate?

  • Acknowledge that chaos is part of your life. The first step for sanity to return is to accept that pandemonium will always be part of your life.
  • Take measures to reduce the chaos and the stress that comes with it. Make a chore chart and stick to it, but don’t feel guilty if you are unable to accomplish a few chores once in a while.
  • Don’t feel like you have to do everything yourself. If the chaos feels overwhelming, ask for help from your family and friends.

Did You Know...

...that Milton wrote another epic poem called Paradise Regained as a sequel to Paradise Lost? Paradise Regained was published in 1671.
