Inspired by kids’ love for Weird But True books, National Geographic Kids has decided to dedicate this holiday season to celebrating all that is weird and wonderful in the world.
On Dec. 4, National Geographic Kids will crown Austin, Texas, as the inaugural Weird but True town of the year and and also celebrate the results of a nationwide survey of what kids think is kooky, unique and wonderfully weird about their worlds and themselves.
Here are some facts readers found the weirdest about their world:
Weirdest law in the United States: It was once a crime to look gloomy in Pocatello, Idaho. Runner-up: Owning confetti is not allowed in Mobile, Ala.
Weirdest name of a U.S. city or town: Pee Pee, Ohio
Michelle Obama has watched each episode of The Brady Bunch at least 50 times

On the heels of Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday, National Geographic Kids has also declared Wed. Dec 4 #WeirdWednesday. They’re encouraging the world to take over social media with weird but true facts and photos.
