Extraterrestrial Culture Day
The second Tuesday of February is observed annually as Extraterrestrial Culture Day and celebrates all of the extraterrestrials who have visited the Earth in the past, the present, and eventually in the future. Although this holiday originally began as one that only existed in New Mexico, it now seems that it is celebrated all over the world, and perhaps all across the galaxy for all we know.
It’s a day for humans to prepare for alien visitation so they can be ready to reap the rewards these extraterrestrial visitors are likely to heap upon us. Who’s ready for some new technology and some new revelations about the universe? We know we certainly are.
The History Of Extraterrestrial Culture Day
This holiday was originally established by the State Of New Mexico when they passed House Bill 766. This bill was originally introduced by State Representative Daniel R. Foley.
This act established Extraterrestrial Culture Day in recognition of the many unexplained mysteries, visitations, sightings, attributed technological advanced, explorations, experimentations, expeditions, storylines for Hollywood sci-fi movies, and other accomplishments of ETs from all over the universe that has contributed to New Mexico’s worldwide recognition as a unique and colorful mosaic of cultural anomalies.
It goes on to further state that this day should be observed to honor all past, present, and future ET visitors in ways to enhance relationships among all of the citizens of the universe, both known and unknown. Although this is uniquely a New Mexico holiday, that doesn’t stop people from all over the world from joining in the fun and also celebrating this day.
Observing Extraterrestrial Culture Day
Obviously, the entire purpose of this holiday was to promote tourism in New Mexico, so the first thing that people might want to do on this day is to visit this state. After all, they do have a thriving “alien” culture all centered around the site of the Roswell Crash. Around that area, there are plenty of tourist attractions.
The incident at Roswell occurred in 1947. While the U.S. government has officially stated that the material collected from this crash was simply the debris from a military balloon, many people still believe to this day that what the government actually collected was the remnants of a crashed flying saucer.
And this debate still rages on to this day, which is why it has become such a large center of tourism. Now, we understand that not everyone can travel to New Mexico to celebrate this holiday. That’s okay because this day can also be celebrated in other ways.
Extraterrestrial fans can watch Alien movies or read books on the subject. We know that on this day we’re going to be binging episodes of the 1990s TV series The X-Files. People can also spread the news about this holiday using the hashtag #ExtraterrestrialCultureDay.
