Towel Day is celebrated every May 25 as a tribute by fans of the late author Douglas Adams.[1] The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after his death on May 11, 2001.[2] On this day, fans carry a towel with them during the day to demonstrate their participation and mourning of the author. The towel is a reference to Adams's popular science fiction comedy series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

So long and thanks for all the fish! You are missed Douglas!
