For Pete’s Sake Day

Oh, for Pete’s sake! Not another pointless holiday?For Pete’s Sake Day remembers an example of the ‘minced oath’, where an offensive word or phrase is replaced by some thing acceptable in society. Other good examples include ‘For screaming noisy!’, and ‘Sugar!’. Such euphemisms happen to be employed for centuries whenever people hit thumbs with hammers, burn on the job hot plates, or take a seat on sharp things during polite company. Why has Pete been designated for special attention?Within the situation of this specific minced oath, Pete will probably make reference to St Peter. However, if there is a Pete inside your existence, why don't you make a move for his sake? It doesn’t need to be much – making them a mug of tea or perhaps a nice sandwich could be good!If you're Pete-less, possibly you are able to celebrate by saying ‘For Pete’s Sake’ if you have an chance.
