History of Embrace Your Geekness Day
A geek is completely obsessed with one or more subjects, and can speak fluently on it for hours, sounding like a walking encyclopedia of geeky facts. Wellcat Holidays organized the holiday stating that we all should be proud of the things that define us, and little defines us as much as those things we’re passionate about. “Dungeon games, comic books, vampire dress-up” we should have no shame about anything we’re into. In fact, you should shout it loud and proud.
Geekdom brings people together, whether they’re sharing their love of a mutual fandom, or talking about their individual fandoms to inspire others to check it out, they love community. Some of the most amazing costuming and tech gadgets have been put together by people inspired by the shows, stories, and games that they love. That’s the power of being in touch with your imagination, and that’s what Embrace Your Geekness Day is all about.
