Aaaaah! Two geek holidays are poking me on the calendar today. :mrgreen:
A day dedicated to the late Douglas Adams. The commemoration was first held on Friday in May 2001, two weeks after his death on May 11, and since then has been extended to an annual event. As a tribute, on this day fans carry a towel with them throughout the day. The towel is of course a reference to Adams’ popular science fiction novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Day of New Hope
This day is in celebration of the beginning of the Star Wars Saga.
