Every year, February 26 is a celebration dedicated to a small Pete's Sake oath, also known as For Pete's Sake Day. Although the phrase For Pete's Sake is difficult to know everything about, it is a brief oath, a small oath, a social rhetoric. A small oath is a flowery expression, or used to replace heavy, offensive words and terms, is a socially acceptable philological expression to express lightness softer.
History of For Pete's Sake Day
How often do you express your personal or professional disappointment or surprise with "For Pete's sake?" Are not? Many or most of us do. But many or most of us don't know how or when that phrase began. For Pete's sake, we should! "For Pete's sake" is derived interchangeably with "for God's sake" and other similar expressions. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "for Pete's sake" was used more than a century ago and makes up similar expressions to "for the love of Pete" in 1906 and "in the name of Pete" in 1942. The annual "Pete's Sake Day" is next Tuesday. It was started by a former Lebanese radio talk show host, Pa., Tom Roy and his wife, Ruth. They sent it to publisher McGraw Hill's "Chase Calendar of Events" 20 years ago. Since then, it has been one of the holidays featured in the makeover.
