So - Happy World Goth and Geek Day
Yes, it’s true. Along with Black Cat Day and Bat Appreciation Day, there’s another spooky date for the calendar. Organised in 2009 by two DJs on the British goth scene, Martin Oldgoth and Cruel Britannia, World Goth Day initially began as a day in the UK only. It wasn’t until the following year that it went international. May 22 was chosen because a BBC radio show focusing on the gothic subculture was broadcast on that date, and the guys fancied extending the goth-love a little further.
Many have said that perhaps Halloween would be a more obvious choice, but as the fellas themselves say “(only if) you want to share the day with half the world who think it’ll be cool to wear black for a day just so they can look ‘spooky’, and completely miss the point after you’ve gone to all that effort to look that good all year round”. Too true! Essentially it is an excuse to get your goth on. To promote gothic music and subculture and celebrate the awesomeness that is gothdom. Organize an event (or support one that is already on), request gothic tracks on your local radio station or at the very least “dress up in full goth regalia and dance around your bedroom to goth songs in your head.” Unless you do that most nights of course.
but everyone can enjoy themselves ..
