A Bonza Bottler Day is celebrated once a month when the number of the month coincides with the number of the day (January 1, February 2, March 3, etc.). When the number of the year also coincides with the number of the day and month (July 7, 1997) or a Bonza Bottler Day falls on an already established holiday (such as January 1 – New Year’s Day)

Origin of this holiday

Bonza Bottler Day was created in the USA by Elaine Fremont in 1985 when she realized there were no special occasions to celebrate one month. She decided to give herself a reason to have a party and some fun with this special day every month. Ms. Fremont held a contest to name the day, which a student from Australia won. When Australians like something, they might exclaim, “Bonza!” (or “Bonzer!”) which means “super”, “great”, or “fantastic”. ‘Bottler’ is slang for ‘something excellent’. Thus, the celebration each month is now known as Bonza Bottler Day, which was first officially celebrated on August 8, 1985.

Elaine Fremont, died in a car accident on April 8, 
1995 at the age of 43. For ten years, she celebrated 
every Bonza Bottler day with her friends. Her sister, 
Gail Berger,  took up the task of sponsoring Bonza 
Bottler Day.

Bonza Bottler Day Celebrations each month

[Note: ‘Bonza’ and ‘bottler’ have long been archaisms in Australia (the former being from the 19th Century, and the latter probably occurring much later) and are only occasionally used these days, generally affectionately, and always ironically.
