The first Friday in May (hey, that’s tomorrow) is No Pants Day, an international holiday observed by the not wearing of pants. Or trousers. Or slacks, if one insists on calling pants slacks. When we say “observed,” we mean that two ways: 1) Sadly, the day is often only observed and not instrumented, people honoring it simply by making mention of it around the water cooler, etc. 2) There’s great fun to be had observing people who do take the day seriously, showing up at the water cooler, etc, totally pantsless. Wikipedia addresses the bare essentials:
The recommended No Pants Day attire is thick, appropriately modest boxer shorts. Other types of underwear, including bloomers, slips, briefs, and boxer briefs all work as well. In addition to pants, the wearing of other conventional leg coverings, such as skirts and dresses, shorts, and kilts is also discouraged.
