National Retro Day - February 27

NATIONAL RETRO DAY

On February 27, National Retro Day takes us back to a time before cell phones and the internet.

Every generation looks back and asks, “Remember when?” National Retro Day indulges our love of the good things from the past while remaining in the present.

No matter the decade, pick a point in time where people talked more face to face than text to text, had dinner at home around the table and kids played games that weren’t mobile or played outside.

What’s your retro? On National Retro Day, swoop the hair into a mile-high beehive or strut those eight-inch bell bottoms. Can you maximize the curls for a stellar Afro? Don’t hesitate to break out the old roller skates and see if you still have those mad skills. Tie the hair up with a polka dot bandana and strike muscle pose like Rosie the Riveter. Maybe you prefer a moonwalk, a leather jacket, and a single glove.

With no cell phones, internet, and social media, we spent more time focused on each other when we were together. Each moment recorded in memory for us to look back retrospectively and not for the whole world to see.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Whatever your retro is, wear it, drive it, play it on National Retro Day. What’s your retro? Let us know by using #NationalRetroDay on social media.

HISTORY

Hermelinda A. Aguilar and Robert A. Duran founded National Retro Day to take a look back at how life was before social media, the internet and cell phones became a necessity of our daily lives.

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Retro Day to be observed annually on February 27, 2018.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
