What is Towel Day?
Towel Day is celebrated every year on May 25 as a tribute to author Douglas Adams by his fans. On this day, fans openly carry a towel with them, as described in Adams' book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, to demonstrate their appreciation for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held May 25, 2001, two weeks after Adams passed away.
