May 25th National Towel Day

It’s National Towel Day in the UK. Apparently there are a lot of uses for a towel in Douglas Adams’, “The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. For those of you too young to remember it, it was a book and radio series back n 1978 which became one of the most popular series ever. It is, and was, a little strange but people really, really liked it. I remember reading it but I have to be honest, I don’t really remember much of it except the towel was a more important item for the traveler. The first National Towel Day came in 2001, two weeks after Adams passed away.

How to celebrate – Read “The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. Look for recordings of the Guide on You Tube. Wash your towels today.
