American Touch Tag Day

 Date When Celebrated: Always October 8

Many of the October holidays center around Halloween and pumpkin themes. However, there's ample room on the October calendar for plenty of holidays and observances celebrating or commemorating other subjects and topics. American Touch Tag Day is one of these important and special days.

American Touch Tag Day is a day to play Touch Tag. That' s right, we're talking about the child's game of Tag. Touch Tag is probably the most popular child's outdoor game in America. Almost all kids have played some version of it.

We are uncertain as to why this day was titled "American". Tag has been known by many names, including: Tag, Touch, Touch Tag, It, Chasey, and Catching. The game has been played by children all over the world for thousands of years, going back as far as Ancient Egypt. If it was ours to call, we would certainly name this day World Tag Day.

Celebrate American Touch Tag Day today. No matter how old you are, go outside and play Touch Tag.....You're it!


Origin of American Touch Tag Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We discovered lots of reference to this day on Ecard sites and calendar sites. But, we found no factual information about it.

We are mildly surprised that this day is in October, when the weather is cold in many areas. Touch tag is most often played on warm summer days and nights.
