If you’re a fan of this column, you know there is a traditional, non-traditional and downright wacky holiday and special occasion for just about everything these days! So far this month, we’ve celebrated National Cheese Day, National Cognac Day, National Bubba Day, National Best Friend Day, World Naked Bike Ride Day, International Panic Day, Dump the Pump Day and Take Your Dog to Work Day – to name a few. "Butt" this event goes down under – way, way under! June 22 is No Panty Day, also referred to as No Panties Day, International No Panty Day and/or National No Panty Day.

No Panty Day

Not to be confused with National Underwear Day, the origins of this annual “holiday” are a bit murky. One theory suggests the event was added to Wikipedia’s International Observance Days either by mistake or as a hoax. Others believe the occasion may have started due to a similar garment-free observance, No Pants Day. But other theories suggest the event began due to the war back in the 1940s. In order to make their “knickers” last longer, women would simply go without.

Regardless of how the event got its start, now you’ve got the perfect excuse to go through your "drawers" and toss out those holey, stained and stretched out skivvies. Yessir, it’s time to give those tighty whities the old heave-ho even if they are your favorite, most favorite pair! Whether you prefer thongs, briefs, boxers, bikini-style or granny panties, today is about going au naturel. It’s time to ditch the bloomers and go bare down there!

And speaking of holidays, June 22 is also National Onion Rings Day and Stupid Guy Thing Day.
