Summary
Today, events occur around the world that bring together different communities to celebrate how we can make our world easier for all.

World Usability Day (WUD) or Make Things Easier Day is held on the second Thursday of November each year.

The day was established in 2005 by the Usability Professionals Association, (now the User Experience Professionals Association), to promote the values of usability, usability engineering, user-centered design, universal usability, and every user's responsibility to ask for things that work better.

The day adopts a different theme each year. Organizations, groups, or individuals are encouraged to hold events to mark the day, optionally according to that year's theme.

According to the official website, World Usability Day is a single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.

It is about celebration and education—celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer.
