Here Is How The Internet Celebrates Mean Girl Day

It’s October 3rd, also known as the day Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) asked Cady Herron (Lindsay Lohan), what day it was. (AKA Mean Girls Day!)

Mean Girls came out in April 2004 and has become a classic that is still trending 15 years later. This scene from the movie where Cady has an interaction with her crush, Aaron, has blown up all over social media establishing “Mean Girls Day,” one of the internet’s favorite meme-inspired national holidays.

Mean Girls‘ actress and writer, Tina Fey is also in the spirit of the holiday! There is a Broadway musical based on the classic teen drama, and Fey is hosting the ultimate viewing party on Facebook Live to celebrate “Mean Girls Day.” At 8 p.m. ET, Fey will co-host the fetch event with Busy Philipps, a self-proclaimed Mean Girls super-fan. The duo will answer fan questions, give away prizes and play trivia before the screening begins.

In celebration of the day, Mean Girls fans often wear pink (even though it’s not Wednesday. “On Wednesdays we wear pink.”) They also eat cheese fries, Regina’s (Rachel McAdams) choice of lunch even though she’s on a diet (“Whatever, I’m getting cheese fries!”), which Fey even passed out to fans in New York on Mean Girls Day in 2017.

That same year, the Broadway musical chose October 3rd to be the first day of ticket sales.

Every year, Jonathan Bennett, gets bombarded with the age-old question, “What day is it?”

“I feel like the Times Square ball on October 3rd, because the entire world is like, ‘Ask us what day it is! Ask us what day it is!’ ” Bennett told People in 2018. “And I’m like ‘Fine, I’ll ask you what day it is.’ It’s so much fun being a part of this crazy holiday that all of a sudden became a thing.”

As Fey and Bennett have their own ways of celebrating October 3rd, let’s take a look at some of the ways users are commemorating the day:

From companies seizing the day to advertise their products, to raising awareness for the environment, to Mean Girls inspired books to fan-art, there’s an infinite amount of ways to celebrate the day. Even though today isn’t a “real” holiday, your social media feeds will be flooded with memes and references from the movies. Even if you never saw the movie (you really should), there’s no way you can forget that October 3rd is Mean Girls Day!
