Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could travel through time?
Would you prefer to move back in time and see the past? Maybe even change it? Or would you rather go forward into the future to see what happens to you and society? Time traveling has been a popular theme for science and science fiction alike. While there are no solid proof that time traveling exists, there is a good amount of scientists that believe that it will be possible some day. For now, time traveling is only seen in science fiction materials. If you want to experience time traveling, you’d have to see a movie, read a book, or celebrate Pretend To Be a Time Traveler Day!
What is Pretend To Be a Time Traveler Day?
The Koala Wallop Online Community started the Pretend To Be a Time Traveler Day in the year 2007. Amelie from the Koala Wallop Community posted guidelines on how to celebrate the event on December 8. This event celebrates the crazy idea of time travelers arriving in our present time period. She enumerates rules and three possible ways people can pretend they’re from a different time.
The first rule is that the participant has to spend an entire day in costume and in character. The second and most important rule is that you cannot tell anyone that you are a time traveler. There are three different options for themes that you could choose from. These are the Utopian/Cliche Future, the Dystopian Future, and the Past.

In the end, Time Travel is still very much a mystery to us. We have many questions left unanswered and many paradoxes left to figure out. Still, this doesn’t stop us from entertaining the crazy idea of time traveling! So put together your best costume, go out, and have fun! Make the future sound very optimistic or make it sound very dark and grimm. It’s up to you! Come from the past and enact the wonder a person from that period would express upon coming to our time period! In the end, it’s all about enjoying the day!
Pretend To Be a Time Traveler Day falls on December 8 of every year!
