Embrace Your Geekness Day was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy, an American actor and his wife, on their website called Wellness.com. This day is one out of eighty days they created as ideas for possible holidays and many are celebrated across the nation. Thomas Roy created these holidays as a radio host in order to encourage people to celebrate. Embrace Your Geekness Day is all about celebrating something you enjoy that is labelled as geeky or nerdy. It is observed and celebrated in different ways by each person. Someone who loves anime may cosplay as their favorite character while another person that enjoys Star Trek may teach themselves Klingonese.
Fun ways to celebrate
Try your hand at making Butterbeer from Harry Potter
Learn a language inspired by a show or book, such as Klingonese from Star Trek or elvish from The Lord of the Rings
Cosplay as your favorite character
Wear a shirt announcing your favorite show
How this holiday Unites People
Embrace Your Geekness Day lets others see what you enjoy and it helps us create bonds with others that enjoy the same things. These bonds may not be created without this day to show our pride in being geeks.
