If you're reading this, odds are every day
is Geek Pride day for you.
But if we had to choose a special day to share our geekiness with the world, we'd choose May 25, which is famous for:
- Towel Day, the day two weeks after Douglas Adams passed in 2001, when hoopy froods keep their towel handy
- The anniversary of the first Star Wars film, Episode IV: A New Hope, released on May 25, 1977
- Glorious 25 May, the day in Terry Pratchett's Discworld when wearing lilac and hard-boiled eggs (and raising awareness around Alzheimer's research) is appropriate
And that's why we are including a free Geek Pride Day pin in ThinkGeek orders shipped after May 9! (Until we run out--of pins, not pride.) Wear it on May 25, and May 26, and May 27, and... nevermind, you'll know what to do.
If you didn't manage to snag a pin, don't panic: download, print, share, and wear pins with this PDF--you'll just need to find a way to attach it to yourself. (We suggest the Force.)
