Happy Geek Pride Day!

Monday, May 25


You might not know it, but May 25 is Geek Pride Day. Why? There are a few reasons:
  1. It's Towel Day, which is the day two weeks after Douglas Adams (author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) passed in 2001.
  2. It's the anniversary of the day Star Wars: A New Hope was first released (in 1977).
  3. It's a special day in Terry Pratchett's Discworld universe. (On Glorious 25 May, characters wear lilac and hard-boiled eggs.)
But really, it's just a good excuse to let your geek flag fly—as though you don't already do that every day.

Think Geek has made it easy to officially show your pride: Just download, print out and wear one (or more, if you're really feeling it) of these little guys.  Might I suggest sticker paper?

Of course, today is also Memorial Day. While you're celebrating your nerdiness, make sure to also take a moment to remember those who gave their lives for our freedoms (geeky ones included!).

  1. Having a towel means that you may also have had a whole host of other items.. that you simply just 'misplaced'.

  2. Didn't even know such a day existed! I'd say I celebrated appropriately (even without knowing it) by getting our second D&D group all planned out and rolling my new character for it. :D
