Ok, so maybe I spoke too soon about World No Panty Day.
Apparently it was derived from the World No Pants Day, see the below definition on Wikipedia and the “photo definition” on the UK Telegraph…
It is all about celebrating freedom, freedom of expression, and breaking social taboos.
Many publications, including New Europe Online Newsroom encourage recognising this day.
I think that if you have the body (and the balls) to do it, then go ahead. Also, united over a common feeling, the cold!
Strangers interact that would never normally have even spoken to each other. The subway rides in the UK are always so grim looking, I should imagine it was a very different story on World No Pants Day.
Whether or not it is a joke, if people are smiling, laughing and indulging in a sense of community, it is a good thing, right?
