When is "Marooned Without a Compass Day"?
Always on November 6
__________________________________________________________

First lets talk about the Definition of being Marooned
Marooning is leaving someone behind on purpose in an uninhabited area, such as an uninhabited island. The word appears in writing approximately 1709, and is derived from maroon, a fugitive slave. It could be a corruption of Spanish cimarrón, meaning "wild". The practice was a penalty for crewmen, or for captains at the hands of a crew. A marooned man was set on a deserted island, often no more than a sand bar. He would be given some food, a container of water, and a loaded pistol so he could commit suicide if he desired. The outcome of marooning was usually fatal.

What is this holiday
Well.... having lack of information about this holiday leads us to guess-  so we believe that this holiday could be a holiday that reffers to "IF we have a sense of direction?" or "Which direction in life will we take today"?  Maybe this holiday is ment for us to find ourselves on this day and stop going around in circles "marooned without a compus". After all the definition of a compass is a navigational instrument for determining direction.

The definition of Despair or hopelessness: is the loss of hope.
I think we all know how it feels to be lost. So on this holiday we shold take the steps to being found don't you think- hahaha!  The first step is doing something. Doing what you ask? Well I find it helpful to remember how to spell the word H E L P. The problem is where do I get the rocks at?

What is the Origin of this holiday?
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this holiday. This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!

We did find reference to this holiday on several ECard websites.
and at mugs.cafepress.com
