National Be a Dork Day
Dorks are social misfits, similar to nerds or geeks, who are out-of-touch, which leads to them looking or acting odd around others. According to Wellcat Holidays, the creators of National Be a Dork Day, today is a day "to be a Dork and be proud." No matter if you consider yourself to be a prep, jock, nerd, dork, geek, hippie, punk, or goth, today you have the opportunity to be a complete dork.
How to Observe National Be a Dork Day
The creators of the day have suggested the following for how to celebrate: "Wear goofy clothing, don't brush your teeth, eat yucky food, and fall off a swing set." Some "goofy" clothing and accessories that you could wear to look like a dork could include highwater pants, shirts that don't fit, suspenders, a fanny pack, and large rimmed glasses. To be a dork, you could also act clumsily and constantly talk about your pet rock or bottle cap collection.
