The annual Silence Day spike on Wikipedia

Some facts about Wikipedia statistics.

The Meher Baba main article on Wikipedia gets about 500 visits every day, about 1,500 a month.

However, every Silence Day there is a spike of visits, mostly to "Silence Day," and a smaller spike for the main Meher Baba article. I assume (but don't know) that this could be the result of people being told by an employee or a friend that they will not be speaking for this one day due to Silence Day.

Here is the current spike so far for Silence Day.
