Wear Something Gaudy Day
Date When Celebrated : Always October 17 th
Wear Something Gaudy Day is your chance to really stick out in a crowd.
The word "gaudy" refers to something bright, gay, cheap, showy, outlandish, or otherwise not in good taste.
Have a little fun on this day. For just one day, forego fashion and style. Look for something to wear that's really wild and wacky, and will stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go. If you don't have anything like this in your wardrobe, perhaps a friend does.
Note: If you're always garbed in gaudy attire, this is your day to look like everyone else!
History and Origin of Wear Something Gaudy Day:
The roots of this day go back to the hit 1970's television comedy show "Three's Company". Larry Dallas (played by Richard Kline), one of the characters on the show, declared a Wear Something Gaudy Day.
