AMERICAN TOUCH TAG DAY
Tag! You’re it! American Touch Tag Day is observed annually on October 8. Celebrating the traditional childhood game, American Touch Tag Day encourages kids of all ages to get out play! Tag can be spent playing outside at recess, after school and on weekends. It can be celebrated by getting out in the fresh air, running around and tagging someone.
Dating back to ancient Rome, this game has been played worldwide with a variety of names and rules. Typically it involves a player running around, chasing other players, in an attempt to “tag” or touch them. Most forms of this game have no teams, scores, or equipment. Usually, the goal involves being the last player left untagged or being safe.
