Happy Towel Day!

Do you know where your towel is?

May 25th is Towel Day, a celebration of the author Douglas Adams. Fans carry a towel around to symbolize their love for the author and his works. Though best known for his book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as well as it’s sequels, Adams also wrote for the screen. He served as script editor on the science-fiction show Doctor Who and wrote the serials "The Pirate Planet" and "City of Death." Adams wrote and designed the computer games Bureaucracy and Starship Titanic. Adams had a close relationship with members of the British comedy group Monty Python. A few Python members even lent their voices to Starship Titanic!

But why towels? According to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, it’s essential that a hitchhiker carry a towel with him, due to its useful nature. You could dry off with a towel, use it as a blanket, carry things with it, and so on. Likewise, if a hitchhiker has a towel, then others will naturally assume the hitchhiker has other necessities on him and will happily lend the hitchhiker whatever he “accidentally lost.”
