National Underwear Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on August 5
National Underwear Day is today. Put on a clean bra and panties, or boxers, and go out to celebrate this very special and unique day.
According to their website, Freshpair, Inc., the founders of this day, celebrates every year by "holding New York City model events, massive underwear giveaways, a pop-up shop in Columbus Circle, and a Times Square runway show."
In 2013, Freshpair organized over 800 people dressed in their underwear in NYC's Times Square, to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people in their underwear. Believe it or not, this was not enough to break the record. But, thanks to this event, a new holiday was born.
Today is a great opportunity to strut your favorite t-shirts, bras, panties, tidy whities and boxers. Please do so in good taste.
Freshpair, an internet company, founded National Underwear Day on August 5, 2003.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. We suspect our national government would not proclaim this as an official "National" day. But, considering today's leaders, we could be wrong.
