For Pete’s Sake Day
For Pete’s sake! Is there another pointless holiday? You can also use ‘For crying out loud!’and ‘Sugar! ‘. These euphemisms were used for centuries when people smashed their thumbs with hammers, burned their hands on hot plates, and sat on sharp objects in polite company. Pete has been given special attention in this minced oath. This is most likely because Pete refers to St Peter. If you have a Pete in your family, what are you waiting for? You don’t need to do much, just make him a cup or sandwich.
