3 Tips for Celebrating Tax Day

For those of you have been buried under a mountain of receipts, forms and bank statements, tax day can’t come any quicker.

All you keep thinking about is hitting the submit button on your taxes and celebrating the fact you have 364 or so more days before you need to panic about taxes again.

Tax Day tends to be a day many procrastinators dread. Whether it’s being up until 11:50PM on the eve of Tax Day, or dreading the possibility of owing Uncle Sam, get it over with and follow our tips for celebrating Tax Day. Not only will this daunting task be behind you, but you’ve got a reason to party it up and we’re here to help. Here’s our top 3 party tips to help you celebrate Tax Day with a slight positive spin.

Tip 1: Invite All of Your Broke Friends Over for a Money Saving Potluck Dinner


With all the paper pushing and nervous breakdowns surrounding lost receipts, everyone could use a nice dinner that’s not that so taxing. Sorry, pun intended! A way to lighten the load, plan a potluck dinner party and each of your guests can contribute to the menu. Our easy and simple dinner recipes are quick to make and are sure to be crowd pleasers. Plus, it'll help you save some cash!

Tip 2: Reminisce About of the Days When Taxes Were a Distant Reality: Class Up Your Old College Jell-O Shots

Gather around your dinner party guests and talk about the good old days. You know, when all you had to worry about was having enough credits to graduate and where you were going for spring break. 


We’ve dressed up your favorite college drink, the historic Jell-O shot and updated these to suit your new adult money sucking-happiness chasing-check writing life.

Tip 3: Build a Bonfire, Burn Your Calculator and Make Some S’Mores

Bonfires and mathematical instruments go hand-in-hand. After doing long division to figure out your deductions, only to be told the standard deduction is the best you can get, you are in no mood to solve any math problems for a long time.


So build a bonfire and toss your calculator, scrap paper, and any related unnecessary migraine inducing configuration objects meant for 8th graders. Celebrate the banishment of these items by making delicious and joy-worthy s’mores.

However way you choose to commemorate this annual reminder of how much of your moolah not actually yours to keep, always remember you do get to benefit from paying taxes. Beyond that, gather around your loved ones and use this as an excuse to party. Once you've gotten over your whining of course.
