Celebrate World Goth Day!

WHAT IS WORLD GOTH DAY?

Goth Day is exactly what it says on the wrapper-a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate it’s own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world. It all started off as ‘Goth Day’ just in the UK back in 2009, but the following year we decided to push the idea across the globe.

WHY MAY 22ND?

Frankly, if there wasn’t an occasion on the 22nd of May, that day would just sit around on your calendar not earning its keep & generally freeloading off the other dates…

Seriously though…May 22nd was the date of Goth Day, the smaller scale UK incarnation of World Goth Day in 2009, originating from a desire to turn what started as a musical subculture weekend on the BBC 6Music station which focused on punk, Brit-pop and Goth (the Goth feature was on May 22nd) into something far bigger.

NOTE: It’s understood that May 22nd might not be a convenient date for everyone to celebrate Goth Day (let’s face it; Wednesdays are a ghost-ship for any event at the best of times), so it’s more of a guideline than a hard & fast rule. Most good events happen on a weekend, but we’ll cross that bridge as the years go by.

So far we have Mother’s Day, Fathers’ Day, Christmas, all manner of religious holidays, some of you may even have special annual celebrations for your pets. It’s only fair that Goths get to have a day of their own too.
