About Inter-Galactic Wear Purple for Peace Day

When is Wear Purple for Peace Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 16

It’s Wear Purple for Peace Day. You’d think that this May 16 holiday originated from a protest of a particular war or conflict. Or, perhaps it was conceived by the UN, or another peacemaking or peacekeeping group. Our extensive research found no evidence supporting the origin of this holiday stemming from these sources. What we found, was that this day was created to promote a peaceful world in the hopes aliens from other worlds would visit us. Doesn’t that sound grand!?

Wear Purple for Peace Day is a stellar event. It seems some of you out there fear that aliens from outer space consider earthlings to be too hostile (you’ve got that right). As a result, they have yet to visit or make contact with us. So, some of you (originators unknown) decided to promote world peace by establishing Wear Purple for Peace Day.

The goal of Wear Purple for Peace Day is to make the world a peaceful place and, of course, encourage alien species to make contact with us.   

Do you want to meet aliens from another planet? Me, too! So, let’s all wear purple for peace today.

History and Origin of Wear Purple for Peace Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. There’s definitely some lost history on this special day. And, we’d love to learn about its origin and history.

Some internet websites refer to this holiday as a “National” day.  They are missing the boat, as this is truly an intergalactic day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
