Hey Candy Geeks,
On May 25th it’s Geek Pride Day and we’re calling out geeks from every corner of the universe to help us celebrate! Heralded by geeks and nerds all over the world, Geek Pride Day is a creative celebration of geek culture, obsession and general geeky coolness. To make the day even sweeter, it’s now all about the candy too!
What is Geek Pride Day?
Let your geek flag fly because there really is a day named in your honour my geeky friends! It’s been celebrated every year on May 25th since 2006 (although the very first Geek Pride Festival was held in Albany and started by New Yorker Tim McEachern in 1998), to commemorate the première of the first Star Wars movie in 1977.
Coincidently, May 25th is also the date of ‘Towel Day’, which celebrates Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy, and the ‘Glorious 25th of May’ for superfans of Terry Pratchett.
