Happy No Pants Day!

May 06, 2011

Whether you knew it or not, the first Friday of May (every year) is always No Pants Day! Find out what it is, who in the world celebrates it and what you can on this special day – without abandoning your pants!

What in the World is No Pants Day?

No Pants Day is a day where everyone, be they students, respectable businessmen or cherished community leaders, leave their pants behind. Usually this means wearing thick, modest boxer shorts, but bloomers, slips, briefs and boxer-briefs all work as well.

That’s It?

Yeah, that’s it. But from the core idea comes so much more. When large groups of people parade around in public without their pants, amazing things happen. At the very least, you’ll take life a little less seriously, at least for one day.

Skirts Instead?

You’re very clever, but you’re missing the point. Articles of clothing like skirts, shorts, kilts and dresses don’t count, because the point is not to replace pants with other clothing. The point is to relax and enjoy the funny things that happen when people don’t wear pants. A good rule is to pretend like you were going to wear pants, and then just forget to put them on.

How Long?

No one knows for sure how long No Pants Day has been celebrated. Some reports place it as early as 1985/86, but for all we know it started long before then.

Is This A Joke?

Yes – but no. It’s just a fun-filled holiday, and the more people who participate the more fun it is.
