I have never heard of International Nude Day, but then I haven’t really been looking for holidays to get naked on since I pretty much try to spend as much time naked as I can. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really need a holiday to tell me to take my clothes off. I mean, just yesterday I was telling my family how I wanted to go skinny dipping in our new above ground pool. Needless to say I got some funny looks. “Um, we do have neighbors?” However, nighttime is a good time to do it….Damn it Alexis, back on track here. According to Holidays Calander:
International Nude Day is a holiday celebrated all over the world on July 14th. On this holiday, people remove all of their clothing. This is done not only for the freedom it provides but also to celebrate the beauty of the human body and to embrace naturism.Holidays Calander
The international holiday originated in New Zealand where a Rugby player, Marc Ellis challenged everyone to streak in front of the Prime Minister on July 14th. The dare became a huge success, and quickly spread to over 30 different countries since the holiday’s inception at the beginning of the 21st century. For the year 2020, we will celebrate this glorious holiday on Tuesday, July 14th.
Alrhough I’m not entirely sure of the reason behind Mr. Ellis’s intentions or what he was trying to achieve, find it admirable and rather brazing to encourage people to run naked in front of the NZ Prime Minister. While technically it’s not a in a nudists playbook to “streak” or exhibit themselves in a way that would cause alarm or concern to others, it is interesting to speculate on what the end goal was. Maybe we can learn something from his actions. Here are a few ideas running through my crazy mind.
This could have been the most probable explanation of his encouragement for people to run naked in front of the prime minister. I don’t know Mr. Ellis’s personality, but being a rugby player and a tv personality could give him a large platform to “experiment” on his influence. What better target than the Prime Minister of the country. Could you imagine what would happen if we did that to the current US President? What kind of reaction would that give? My thoughts are given his history he would like it.
