Embrace Your Geekness Day
History of Embrace Your Geekness Day
What exactly does it mean to be a geek? Well, definitions differ (and believe us, you don’t want to look up the Victorian age definition of a geek) but in today’s world it just means one thing. A geek is completely obsessed with one or more subjects, and can speak fluently on it for hours, sounding like a walking encyclopedia of geeky facts.
Wellcat Holidays organized the holiday stating that we all should be proud of the things that define us, and little defines us as much as those things we’re passionate about. “Dungeon games, comic books, vampire dress-up” we should have no shame about anything we’re into. In fact, you should shout it loud and proud.
Geekdom brings people together, whether they’re sharing their love of a mutual fandom, or talking about their individual fandoms to inspire others to check it out, they love community. Some of the most amazing costuming and tech gadgets have been put together by people inspired by the shows, stories, and games that they love. That’s the power of being in touch with your imagination, and that’s what Embrace Your Geekness Day is all about.
If you have a fandom you’ve been hiding in a closet, don’t let it sit there unloved anymore. Get out into the world and wear your favorite shows t-shirt, talk to your friends about the stuff you love, maybe even try an arts project.
Need to start your day off right? It’s time to use this anthem via video to inspire your pride, and maybe teach you how to find that geeky love of your dreams.
Embrace Your Geekness Day reminds us that we’re not alone in our Geekness, and the world is a better place for our bright showing of imagination, creativity, and pride.
Now get out there and get your geek on! Alamogordo Happy Day to all the nerdy folks and geeks out there today is your day!
