National Nude Day
When : July 14th
National Nude Day is a way to keep cool on a hot , sticky summer day. So, take it off......take it all off.
.... Sorry,we will display no pictures of National Nude Day.
National Nude Day is a serious event. There are a sizable number of nudist groups around the world. They are not perverts. Rather, Nudists believe that the body is a beautiful thing, and meant to be displayed. Nudist colonies, nude beaches, and other venues exist to cater to the preferences of individuals who seek to walk around "au natural".
We will not speak to whether this is right or wrong. We simply desire to make you aware of all of this holiday. Snicker if you will. But, please don't put the "sleeze" into this holiday.
Important Note: Sorry, as a kid safe site, we will not include or point you towards pictures or any other offensive material. Our goal and purpose is to report and document the holidays for fun purposes.
Interestingly, we found a lot of sites promoting Nude Day T-shirts. But, isn't this problematic? How can you wear a T-shirt on National Nude Day!??
The Origin of National Nude Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. This holiday appears to have originated in New Zealand.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
(I will participate, at home, in the shower, and in public under my clothes!)
