Today is Day of the Dude - the sacred high holy day of Dudeism.
If you've never heard of Dudeism, it's a sort of mix of ancient Taoism, Ancient Greek philosophies, and modern ideas. It's supposed to be personified by a fictional character named Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski in the movie The Big Lebowski. (The movie is rated R and stars Jeff Bridges.)
Some people probably look on Dudeism as a sort of cool fan-based mock religion, but others actually take it seriously. They have a logo and some Great Dudes in History, who include Laozi, the Ancient Greek philosophers Epicurus, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Mark Twain. There are tens of thousands of Dudeist priests and Dudeist marriages. Some of the philosophies include "go with the flow," "take it easy," and "keep your cool."
The Church of the Latter-Day Dude, which is the full formal name, offers The Dudespaper, a holy book called The Tao Dude Ching, and self-help books such as The Abide Guide.
The other "D" Day celebrated today is National Dress Day - a day to wear your favorite dress, share photos of your favorite dresses, and remember your favorite dresses from days gone by.
I personally most like a hippie or new-hippie, bohemian vibe in dresses - even though I don't wear dresses very much at all!
Here are some boho-type dresses:
