International Fanny Pack Day

Fanny packs started as a fad in the 1980s, but the truth is that they have never stopped being useful. Men and women could carry their belongings in a fanny pack, which was extremely convenient since men don’t use purses. Women become tired of having the strap of handbags hanging off from their shoulders for long periods. That is why you want to celebrate this neat helper on International Fanny Pack Day.

March 12th is the day where you want to take out your fanny pack and wear it around, and not forget to put your necessities inside of it so you can grab them from your fanny pack whenever you need it on the go. You can bring tissues, pens, notepads, gum, lip balm, hard candies, and anything else you need, making it a convenient thing to place your phone and keys inside.

You can also enjoy any style of fanny pack around as you can get one with neon colors or get them in plain or neutral colors. You can have your fanny pack take on any design that you wish. Back in the 1980s, the fanny pack made a great fashion accessory, and it was fun to wear for that reason.

If you grew up in the 1980s, you likely have memories of your classmates at school wearing their fanny packs and you wanting to have the same one that someone else had because it was pretty cool. Those were the simple days, for sure. You also likely placed some snacks in your fanny packs to have something to munch on during the times of recess when you were in school. And if you carry one around today, you may want to bring a snack with you and put it in there, too, if you get hungry when you are out.

History Of International Fanny Pack Day

International Fanny Pack Day started because of a random guy, Nick Yates, having a funny experience at a Christmas party involving him receiving gag gifts, including a fruitcake and a fanny pack. He decided to put the fruitcake inside of the fanny pack and strapped it onto him. Then he headed towards the bus stop and encountered a homeless man who made fun of Yates for having the fanny pack. Then Yates gave the homeless man the fruitcake in the pouch, which made Yates think that there was a connection with feeding the hungry and fanny packs. Then he went to food banks to present the idea, and then it took off, and in 2007, International Fanny Pack Day became a thing in seven different countries.
