Nerd Holidays


May the Fourth Be With You and Talk Like a Pirate Day are among the most well-known examples of nerd holidays, but there are a lot more than these!  Next year, I plan on celebrating as many of them as possible, so I compiled a list of the ones I’m interested in.  Then, I thought, surely there are others who would be interested in them too, so I decided to share this list with all of you!
