It is believed that a Larry Dallas, a character in the American comedy show Three’s Company made up this bright and loud holiday. The show aired between 1977 and 1984 and follows the lives of three roommates in Santa Monica, California.

The word gaudy is used to refer to things that are bright and flashy and usually tasteless and tacky.

How to Celebrate?

  • Wear something gaudy. Have a neon pink shirt? Pair it with bright neon green pants. Accessorize with more colorful jewelry and you are all set to celebrate this fun and colorful holiday.
  • Own a bedazzler? Bedazzle your own outfit and shine throughout the day. Also plus point, if you bedazzled a sweater, you could reuse it on Ugly Sweater Day during the holidays.

Did You Know…

…that contrary to popular belief, the term gaudy does not come from the Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi? Etymologists have traced the usage of the word to the 16th century, well before Gaudi’s time. At that time, the word was used to refer trickery.
