Towel Day

toweldayTo commemorate the late Douglas Adams, each year on the 25th of May, people across the globe celebrate Towel Day. The premise of the day is simple, in order to follow the wise words of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, simply carry a towel with you.


For a whole day.

Towel Day is a way to show your appreciation for not only Douglas Adams but also because it is a universally know fact that a towel is the most important thing that an intergalactic hitchhiker can own. It is important to follow in the example of Ford Prefect and always ‘know where your towel is.’

So on the 25th of May, find your favourite towel, dust off your dressing gown, and embrace the British by having a cup of something ‘not entirely unlike’ tea.

Just whatever you do, stay away from Pangalactic Gargle Blasters.

    1. I wasn’t aware of them until just now, that is a hilarious skit! Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention 🙂


      1. Glad to enlighten….I couldn’t stop laughing when I was shown that the first time!


      2. I loved the music they used with it. It fit so well. I am now also trying to share the love for the act 🙂


      3. Excellent. Glad to promote those guys…..not everyday you see a duo that’s so original anymore! And they really are quite funny!


  1. If I hadn’t been in Sydney at the Writers Festival I totally would have found a dressing gown and worn a towel around my neck all day! I know what I’m doing next year on May 25!


    1. Haha I had a tea towel in my handbag 🙂 Sadly did not get to use it for hand to hand combat or to use it to hide from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. Used it to wipe up a spilt drink though.
