Internet holidays are brilliant things. There are some fairly well known ones, like talk like a pirate day, which are actually celebrated by a lot of people. I’ve seen some fantastic pictures of silliness due to such events.
There is a rather neat website which has been set up to track some of the more obscure holidays, and I discovered that May 25th, today, is Towel Day. It’s a tribute to the legend that is Douglas Adams, and the idea is quite simply that you carry a towel around with you all day. If you don’t understand, then I suggest you seriously need to read the hitchikers guide to the galaxy.
