If you are a fan of the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, you’ll know that the 25th May is Towel Day in his honour. It’s a simple concept, wear a towel around your neck all day in Adams’ honour.
Other things you can do are
- upload a picture on Facebook
- use the above graphic as your facebook cover – it was created by Oren Mashovski. Get it here!
- post on Flickr (tag it “#towelday” and add it to the group)
- post a video on YouTube.
There are more ideas on the Towel Day website
Locally, (well in Sydney), the Kinokuniya bookstore is offering customers who wear a towel on Towel Day 20% off on their full price book purchase. But you must have your towel around your neck when you approach the cashier staff, your towel should preferably be a bathroom towel or large hand towel, and there is only one discount per towel and one discount per person.
