Where Are You Wearing Your Towel This Year?

Dear Diary:

Another year to celebrate Towel Day is upon us.  Towel Day is a global observance of the life of author Douglas Adams, who wrote "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".  I posted about the history in 2013 and shared my celebration with my friend, Sam in 2014 . Towel Day was first observed on May 25th, 2001, two weeks after Adams's death, and was named as such due to a quote in his book that referenced the greatness of towels. 

Therefore, towels are very prominent symbols used on this day.  It doesn't matter the colour or size.  Some towels are embroidered with phrases from the "Guide" book.  The most common are "42" (the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything); "Don't Panic" (an instruction for the use of the fictional "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"); and "Mostly harmless" (the entry for planet Earth in the Guide).

You can pick up this Towel Day towel, made by Uccello Poultry, FREE on Marketplace.  While there, the man in your life can also pick one up for himself.

Check the Towel Day website for events taking place on this day.
