Happy Towel's Day! Douglas Adams fans!
"On the 25th of May, carry a towel. Where? Everywhere! Proudly show the world you've observed Towel Day and upload a picture to Flickr, tagging it with 'towelday' or make a YouTube video."
Towel Day is basically a memory tribute to the late Douglas Adam which was an English writer, dramatist, and musician.. 25 may 2001 was the death date. My favorite book was actually written by him.I love Hitch Hiker Guide To The Galaxy. Doughlas Adam was a genius.
On this day, fans carry a towel with them to demonstrate their love for the books and the author, as referenced in Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
In the book, there's has several notable tips that you should take to heart when going on a walking vacation. The first being to always carry a towel. "A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have." "...any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."
Today is Towel Day. Don't forget your towel people!
