National Towel Day

Date When : Always on May 25

Towel Day is a tribute to British author Douglas Adams (1952-2011). Adams was a well known author, scriptwriter, essayist, humorist, satirist and dramatist. This special day was established by his very loyal fans, and is popular in The United Kingdom. Towel Day was created to honor Adams, and as a celebration of his many works.

To understand the meaning of Towel Day, one must know The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,  an original radio series comedy aired in England. The towel was introduced in the radio series in 1978. A follow-up book explained the importance an usefulness of towels to hitchhikers.

 Celebrate Towel Day by carrying a towel with you. You can further enjoy this day, by reading Adams' book: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.


Origin of National Towel Day:

Fans first celebrated this day on May 25,  2001, two weeks after Adams' death (May 11, 2001).

This special day originated in the United Kingdom. We have not found any  proclamations from Parliament or Government leaders establishing this as a true "national" day. Nor, has the Queen of England made any proclamations on this that we are aware of.
