17 October - Wear Something Gaudy Day
What a fabulous unusual holiday. In the 1970's television comedy Three's Company, Larry Dallas, played by Richard Kline, called for a Wear Something Gaudy Day. That is believed to be when the day got started, and people have been standing out from the crowd with their style of dress ever since.
Wear Something Gaudy Day is celebrated every year on 17th October. This funny day cheers everyone to put on all the flashy, crazy, and gaudy clothes you would not wear on an average day. Wear Something Gaudy Day is a Day for bad taste, flashy clothes and funny people to take part in the celebration. The word gaudy refers to something that is bright, flashy, cheap, crazy, tacky, and tasteless. On this Day, hang out by wearing a tedious and tasteless clothes.
