Origin of this holiday
The history of No Pants Day is shrouded in mystery. While there are unconfirmed reports that the holiday was celebrated as early as 1985/86, there is no known physical record of the origin or first practice of No Pants Day. The Knighthood of BUH at the University of Texas at Austin is viewed as the principal organizer and advocate of the holiday. Austin, considered the originating city, has celebrated the day since 1997 according to a 1999 flyer. The holiday gets media attention every year, and as a result events celebrating No Pants Day have popped up in cities across the globe. Promoters state that the holiday is about not taking oneself seriously. The holiday is an example of surreal humor, which relies on an absurd situation (in this case, crowds of people walking around wearing no trousers).

In 2002 Improv Everywhere, the NY based performance art group, had their first No Pants day. Since then this has been an annual event for the group, usually occurring in early January and on the subway system of the city.

How is this fun holiday celebrated?
This holiday is celebrated by not wearing any pants (trousers). The use of the word pants is the American English version meaning trousers (the item of clothing covering both legs worn as the outermost garment). According to the FAQ, it is mainly "a fun-filled holiday", but "from the core idea comes so much more":

   "When large groups of people parade around in public without their pants, amazing things are bound to happen." "At the very least, you’ll take your drab, wretched life a little less seriously, at least for one day."
