THURSDAY, Oct. 1 — Plaidurday, the self-proclaimed “worldwide celebration of plaid,” celebrates its fourth anniversary tomorrow.

Started in 2011 by MSU alum and then Lansing resident Justin “Bugsy” Sailor, the unofficial holiday always lands on the first Friday of October. Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite plaid clothing items to mark the occasion.

In addition to wearing plaid, the official Plaidurday website offers several suggestions for celebrating Plaidurday, including complimenting someone else’s plaid shirt or donating old plaid shirts to someone in need. Participants can also share pictures of their outfits on social media using the hashtag #plaidurday.

Lansing Plaidurday celebrants are encouraged to meet up at 6 p.m. at “The Worker” statue near the corner of Cedar and Shiawassee streets for a group picture.
