Be Bald and Be Free Day
annually on October 14th
Be Bald and Be Free Day is dedicated to those who are bald. Some who are bald usually wear a wig or toupee, while others embrace their baldness. On Be Bald and Be Free Day, all those who are bald are to be proud of their baldness and are to forego any sort of covering.
People can become bald because of genetics, because of medication or illness, or because they choose to be bald. Sometimes people choose to be bald because they like the style, but sometimes people choose to go bald to be in solidarity with a friend or family member who has lost their hair because of medical treatment. Whatever the reason someone is bald, this day is for them.
How to Observe
If you are bald, wear your head shiny and with pride! Get rid of toupees, hats, and scarves, if only for a day. If you aren't bald, this may be a good day to shave your head! Just because someone is bald, it does not mean they can't accomplish much—many bald people have found success!
