It's national narcissism day on the 6th December.
National Narcissism Day is a relatively new addition to the list of quirky national days. It first gained attention online on December 6, 2015, and has since become a way for individuals to embrace their inner diva and indulge in some healthy self-love.
Now, you might be wondering how a day dedicated to excessive self-admiration came about. Well, blame it on the internet! In this era of selfies and social media, where every moment is documented and shared for the world to see, it was only a matter of time before someone declared a national day just for celebrating oneself.
Celebrating National Narcissism Day is all about embracing your inner narcissist in fun and lighthearted ways. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Did you know that the term 'narcissism' comes from Greek mythology? It originates from the story of Narcissus, a young man who was so infatuated with his own reflection in a pool of water that he couldn't tear himself away. Talk about self-absorption!
The term 'narcissism' was first coined by French writer and critic Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr in 1818. He used the term in his novel 'Les Guêpes' to describe the excessive self-love and vanity displayed by a character named Narcisse.
In 1905, the famous Austrian neurologist and psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud introduced the concept of narcissism in his seminal work 'Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality.' Freud described narcissism as a normal stage of human development and characterized it as a form of self-love and self-centeredness.
In 1968, the American Psychiatric Association officially recognized Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) as a diagnosable mental disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). NPD is characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.
During the late 1970s, the term 'narcissism' gained widespread recognition and became a popular topic in popular culture. The self-centered, egotistical characters portrayed in movies, literature, and television often embodied narcissistic traits, capturing the public's fascination with the concept.
