Tuesday has arrived with Bald and Free Day and people everywhere are celebrating their bare heads.
Whether you are bald for medical reasons or from simply getting older, Bald and Free Day encourages people to accept the condition. The holiday even celebrates the freedom from shampoo and other products that comes along with baldness.
The Christian Post was unable to identify the exact date for Bald and Free Day. Some sources indicate that Bald and Free Day takes place each year on Oct. 14, while others claim both Oct. 7 and Oct. 9. Also, the creator of the unusual but uplifting holiday remains unknown, but even still, cancer survivors and cure supporters are showing off their lack of hair on Bald and Free Day on Tuesday.
On Twitter, many users were wishing others well and noting the perks of being bald.
"Happy Bald and Free Day," wrote The Daily Critter. "If you are bald, enjoy your freedom. No haircuts, shampoo, hair sprays, combs etc."
Hamilton County wrote, "Today is Bald and Free Day, honors those of us with a beautiful, shiny top. You don't have to be bald to celebrate this day. But, it helps."
"Happy Bald and Free Day," Blake posted before jokingly adding, "I recommend taking a baldy out to lunch! Let me know if you have problems finding one."
Coincidentally on Bald and Free Day, the baseball team at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. shaved their heads on Monday in the name of research to end childhood cancer, reported WDBJ7.
Additionally, all of the funds collected by the baseball players will be donated to a woman named Melina Brown, whose 12-year-old son was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor at age four, but is now cancer-free.
Tuesday also marks Curious Events Day and Moldy Cheese Day, according to Holidayinsights.com.
