National Badger Day Campaign

Join our campaign to make National Badger Day a UK public holiday. There are many ways you can help the cause, here are some ideas to choose from or just make up one of your own.

  • Shout out "National Badger Day" a few hundred times in your local supermarket to help publicise the day. From past experience this is a real head turner and provides vital free publicity of the day.
  • Get the "Campaign To Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday" trending on twitter with the catchy hashtag #CTMNBDAPH.
  • Vote Yes in the Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday referendum. If there is no referendum scheduled then schedule one.
  • Or write a stern but informative letter to your local MP asking for his or her support on the matter. Don't worry about having to write one yourself, just use this one below.

Dear local MP (sorry, I don't know your name and I can't be bothered to find out),

Re: Campaign To Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday

I wish to bring to your attention growing concerns from the British public regarding the current status of National Badger Day, held annually on 6th October. This important day in our calendar does not currently have national holiday status and this oversight needs to be urgently addressed. This is why I have joined the Campaign To Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday, or CTMNBDAPH for short.

Our beloved National Badger Day is an opportunity for everyone to learn about badgers, take part in badger-related activities and even pretend they're a badger by digging holes in their neighbour's lawn. But sadly people who work all day are not free to celebrate unless they use up a holiday day or phone in sick pretending to be ill.

In a recent imaginary poll National Badger Day was voted the country's favourite day, beating even Christmas Day to the top spot. So why does Christmas Day enjoy holiday status and National Badger Day does not? Data released by the Office for National Badger-Related Statistics shows that 6th October, National Badger Day, is the day when most people take the day off work. Coincidence? I think not.

The CTMNBDAPH was founded by the Big Cheese of We Are All Badgers, Big Cheese Badger, and he campaigns tirelessly to put right this terrible wrong. You might have heard of him through his work with one of the UK's favourite charities, Badger The Government. He is currently leading a high-profile national campaign, backed by strong support from the British public, to rename beans on toast to toast under beans.

Big Cheese Badger is also working himself to the bone every afternoon between 2:10pm and 2:13pm sending tweet after tweet trying to get #CTMNBDAPH trending on twitter but he's exhausted and desperately needs a three-week holiday. He's even raised the matter several times in the House of Commons after he manages to sneak in with his fake ID pretending to be an MP for the Badger Party, but the Prime Minister repeatedly ignores his questions and always changes the subject to things like economic recessions, climate change or global pandemics. His attitude is unacceptable.

So join the CTMNBDAPH and add your voice to the cause. You can make a difference, you can make the Prime Minister listen to sense and you can make some more fake MP ID for Big Cheese Badger.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,



A concerned citizen (sorry, I don't know my name and I can't be bothered to find out)



PS - Note that CTMNBDAPH is an acronym, not an abbreviation, so should be pronounced accordingly.

PPS - Also, the T is silent.
