Where does National Boyfriend Day come from?
— Audrey Whitby (@audreywhitby) October 3, 2012
It seems the tweeters seized not on German National Unity Day but on Mean Girls Day, which also falls on October 3 thanks to an oft-quoted scene in the 2004 comedy in which Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is asked by her future boyfriend what day it is. It was, yes, October 3.
As an unofficial holiday, you’re not going to see special National Boyfriend Day candies and decorations out in the world, though don’t put it past anyone to capitalize on it. It’s more seen on social media as a hashtag, #NationalBoyfriendDay, with posts and pictures about one’s boo or in online articles tying into the event or using it as a peg for their brand.
And oh, girlfriends get their day, too. National Girlfriend Day is on August 1.
