Towel Day

I don't believe any threads have been explicitly created about Towel Day, so here I go.

What is Towel Day?

For those who don't know, today is Towel Day - May 25th. You celebrate it by carrying a towel around with you for the day. This is in memory of Douglas Adams, who passed away in 2001. Why do we remember this great man's passing by wearing towels? In his most famous set of works, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a towel is described by the Guide to be the most massively useful object a hitchhiker can have.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

So, how many people out there participate?

I am currently doing so, and have done so the last two years, each time being fantastic!
