I had no idea what was happening when I began to see picture after picture on Facebook of folks standing their brooms upright.

Was it National Recreate a Scene from Fantasia Day?

Was everyone FINALLY tired of, you know, actually HOLDING the broom as they swept?

These were legit questions.

But then I got to thinking that maybe the Earth is at a certain angle right now that makes this possible. You know, some SCIENTIFIC reason like we're at a specific and significant point between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox (otherwise known as the first days of winter and spring).

But then I learned about the #broomstickchallenge.

A WPSD-Paducah story tells us of a viral tweet that said NASA suggested yesterday, Monday, February 10th, was the only day you could do the standing broom thing.

But NASA wouldn't say that because they know better:

See?

Any. Time. Of. The. Year.

Look...I can do it too.
