Date: Celebrated Annually on May 25
Let your nerd flag fly May 25 as that’s when we celebrate Geek Pride Day.
May 25 was chosen for Geek Pride Day as homage to the release of the first Star Wars film on May 25, 1977. However, it also shares the same date as two other geeky celebrations: Towel Day, a celebration for fans of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25th of May for fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld fantasy novels.
The initiative originated in Spain in 2006 as Día del Orgullo Friki and spread around the world thanks to the Internet. Go geekdom!
