Grues Day is either:
The reason for this is because
a bunch of stupid n00bz0rz the wise creators of the game didn't know that grues had their own holiday and so they were eaten left it as it was.
Grues Day (day of the week)
Grues Day is the third day of the week according to the Zorkian calendar. The reason for this is that all of the people of Zork were afraid of getting eaten, so they dedicated a day of the week to the humble grue. Some scientologists speculate that the reason for naming the day "Grues Day" was that, previously, the third day of the week was referred to as "tuesday," and whoever named that day thought that it was a clever pun. Those scientologists were eaten.
Grues Day (holiday)
Grues Day takes place on the last Grues Day in the month of [[|December|Dismember]]. The purpose of the day was originally for grues to celebrate their Gruish heritage, just like many other Gruish holidays, like Grassover, Grom Kippur, and Granukkah. However, like many other holidays, it has now become a mass gift-giving extravaganza.
Traditional Grues Day Celebration
A traditional Grues Day celebration usually consists of going to nearby cities and towns and, after nightfall, eating all of that year's predetermined victims who had not yet succumbed to a grue. The victims are then eaten. Again.
Modern Grues Day Celebration
Modern Grues Day celebrations have become the way they are partially because cities and towns are much more well-lit than they used to be, and partially because they can now get the same satisfying Grues Day experience with them. Grue's Day is August 1, or whenever the Grues decide they want to celebrate it.
