17 October - Edge Day
Edge Day is a celebration founded by people who live straight edge lifestyles. The occasion has been observed annually on October 17 since 1999. The inaugural event, originally called Edge Fest, was held in Boston, Massachusetts.
At its essence being straight edge is about abstaining from harmful substances. The straight edge lifestyle is a commitment to abstinence from alcohol, recreational or illicit drugs and tobacco, or the abuse of such substances. Straight edge is a movement that began in the punk rock scene of the early '80s when sex, drugs and rock and roll was a common theme in music.
