National Nude Day

National Nude Day is a holiday celebrated on July 14 in many countries around the world. On this day, everyone is invited to get rid of their clothes, feel free and light and cool off on a hot summer day. Many on this day change their habits, remembering how much they are connected with nature. The event originated in New Zealand and quickly spread around the world. Now it is celebrated on almost all continents.

The History

The holiday began as a funny joke, when on one of the shows in New Zealand, a well-known TV presenter, as well as athlete, Mark Ellis, called on the audience to run naked in front of the country’s prime minister. Since then, the idea has become widespread, with viewers regularly submitting numerous nude photos of themselves to the show. The action on television continued until 2009, and then continued on the Internet. Since then National Nude Day has been celebrated annually on July 14th.

Interesting Facts
