National Goof-Off Week is a title and concept that has many different meanings. The week during the baseball World Series has been referred to as National Goof-Off Week, as well as the week between Christmas and New Year’s. In 1973, the term appeared as a copyrighted phrase by the Hallmark Company. Given that this button was created in 1972 and copyrighted by Hallmark, it is likely this was an attempt to create a “Hallmark Holiday”- a holiday primarily for commercial purposes.
