Sadie Hawkins Day
Today is Sadie Hawkins Day! Did you know that Sadie Hawkins Day first appeared in the classic hillbilly comic strip Li'l Abner in 1937? In the original story, Sadie's father was worried that she would never be married, so he announced a race for all of the town's eligible bachelors. Sadie was ordered to run after them, and he declared that, “Th’ one she ketches’ll be her husbin.”
Sadie Hawkins Day is recognized as an American folk event in which girls take the initiative to ask a boy out for a date (something that was unheard of in 1937). Participate in this unique tradition today by hosting a Sadie Hawkins dance or send a message to that crush you've been eyeing.
