Where does World Redhead Day come from?
World Redhead Day is celebrated around the world, although it is not recognized as an official holiday by any one country. It is typically celebrated in late May or November.
In case you had no idea: A redhead is technically defined as “a person having red hair,” but the term can also apply to people who have auburn hair, which is a reddish-brown or golden-brown color. People with red hair are also called gingers or ginges.
World Redhead Day is of unknown origin, however it has borne offshoots, including National Love Your Red Hair Day and Kiss a Ginger Day. In the Netherlands, a similar holiday called Redhead Day or Roodharigendag, is celebrated in September.
