What is Towel Day?
Every year on the 25th
May, Towel Day is celebrated as a tribute to Douglas Adams, the creator of ‘The
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’. What started out as a radio show on BBC,
turned into a worldwide science fiction phenomenon. The radio show was followed
by stage shows, novels, a TV show, computer game and a film over past 40 years.
In the book, Adam’s states that the value of towels is “about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” He goes on to list the many uses a towel has… here are some favourites:
- “Wave your towel in emergencies
as a distress signal.”
- “Wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat.”
- “Dry yourself off with it if it still seems clean enough.”
