No Pants!

No Pants Day is a participatory holiday that happens on the first Friday in May. The holiday is based on the premise of having people spend their day not wearing any pants (trousers). Participants are challenged to act as if there is nothing strange about not wearing pants in public. The liberation of breaking a social taboo and seeing the reaction of people not aware of the event generally makes the event fun for its participants.

The people who participate in No Pants Day drop all standards of modesty to celebrate this holiday. While I wouldn’t exactly encourage taking off your pants today, I do encourage Christians to ‘drop all standards of modesty.’ We shouldn’t ‘clothe’ ourselves with civil duties. Christians shouldn’t be afraid to stand out and be different for God. I encourage Christians, not just today but every day, to drop the civil duties and instead pick up their Christian duties to God.
