July 14th Is National Nude Day!

July 14, 2010

National Nude Day is today July 14th. As a hot tub lover, you may love hot tub soaking in the nude, but not want to show it all when not heading for the water.  Right? But National Nude Day is one kind of  celebration  for how to keep cool on a hot , sticky summer day.

National Nude Day is a purported to be a serious event with all of the nudist groups around the world.  Nudists believe that the body is a beautiful thing, and meant to be displayed.  We’re not disputing the “beautiful”, it’s the “display”  that most people have a problem with! Nudist colonies, nude beaches, and other venues exist to cater to the preferences of individuals who seek to walk around “au natural”.

We will not speak to whether this is right or wrong. We’re simply making you aware  of this holiday. Snicker if you will. But, no “sleeze” please about this holiday. We have no photo to illustrate this post because there is nothing worse than seeing someone’s hot tub party pics the day after.  Check out our hot tub etiquette tips for more on this.  Imagination is just that..and so much better left to the imagination in this case!

Interestingly, we found a lot of sites promoting Nude Day T-shirts. But, isn’t this problematic? How can you wear a T-shirt on National Nude Day!??

The Origin of National Nude Day:  Our research couldn’t locate the creator, or the origin of this day. Although this “holiday” appears to have originated in New Zealand, we didn’t find any documentation confirming this to be a “National” day.  We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.  Oh well, it’s fun any way!

Thanks to Holiday Insights for the info on National Nude Day.

Nude in the hot tub or not nude? Let us know which you prefer. Or, does your choice of bathing suit or not depend on whom you’re soaking with?
