Were you wondering why today felt so special? Maybe you weren’t.
But, nonetheless, today has been dubbed Redhead Appreciation Day.
Wait, you say. But my calendar has no such reminder of the worthy day to stop and take notice of the auburn amazingness.
I too was victim to the same level of shock, for my vintage Hawaiian calender reminds me of such recognizable gems as Nunavut Day (CAN), Marine Day (JPN) and Eid Ul-Fitr (ISLAM) but no mention that July 11th marks the day I should appreciate my strawberry locks.
Then I took a breath and Googled.
It turns out that this special day was created by Marble Slab Creamery to celebrate the single greatest hair color (If I were to insert a link here it would just be to Conan O’Brien or Tilda Swinton) and offer people sporting copper curls with a scoop of red velvet ice cream.
So whether you have them, love them, covet them, or curse them — if you can shake them or fake them — today is your day to revel and get free ice cream.
HAPPY REDHEAD APPRECIATION DAY TO ALL.
