It’s a day after New Year. While 2021 celebrations may have been over the top, this post is a good lemonade. Today we celebrate two of the most inter-connected events of all time. January 2 brings you World Introvert Day and National Science-fiction Day. While these events have a different history, it is too convenient that they fall on the same day.
National Science Fiction Day
Imagination has no bounds. This is especially true when we talk about Science fiction or Sci-fi. It is a genre that deals with concepts that may happen in future. Some good examples are Time-travel, Robots, Space exploration, etc. However, this is not limited only to these. You can also find various books talking about alternate timeline and universe. Something which could happen if certain events were different. While this is fascinating, let’s scratch the surface and explore more.
Issac Asimov, the father of modern-day Sci-fi, was born on January 2. He was a prolific and most influential writer in Sci-fi. Issac wrote more than five hundred books and many more short stories. He introduced the word ‘Robotic’. He also coined ‘Three Laws Of Robotics’. While he was born in Russia, he grew up in the United States. While this day is not official, fans celebrate it in memory of Issac and his writing.

Like any good day, we encourage you to watch your favourite movies. You can also share your favourite books, movies or anime on social media. You can also join groups and fan-pages celebrating your favourite Sci-fi shows. Also, why limit yourself only to reading others work? If you have a great idea about a good Sci-Fi shorty, it is your day to pen it down.
World Introvert Day
Introvert are people who prefer a calm and quiet environment. Terms like shy, reserved, etc are often used to understand introverts. Introverts make about twenty-five to forty per cent of the World’s population. While many a time they presumed to have a lack of self-esteem. Introverts prefer not to interact even when convenient. They are often misread at various social events. They are usually self-aware and reflective. While they do have a hard time saying no without being rude, they are definitely someone worth talking to.
Terms introversion and extroversion were popular in 1921. Carl Jung, a Swiss psychoanalyst, studied the impact of external factors on human. Factors like family relations, etc influence the person’s development. First World Introvert Day was celebrated on January 2, 2011. It fell right after New Year as Introverts need time to relax after socialising. Celebrate this day focusing on our lovely day-dreamer. While extroverts prefer speaking with real people. Introverts do their best while texting.
