National Power Rangers Day
National Power Rangers Day is a holiday celebrated on August 28th every year and is used to celebrate one of the most popular live-action superhero TV series in pop culture.

The History of National Power Rangers Day
Power Rangers was a television show first introduced to the general public on August 28, 1993. The series quickly became a smash sensation, and a line of Power Ranger toys and other merchandise was soon rolled out. Although the original show lasted only three years, over the last few decades, new shows have been released occasionally. These new shows have featured different actors and have expanded the mythology of the franchise even further. Now the show has been on the air for over 25 years.
To commemorate the series, and more than likely sell a few toys in the process, Hasbro officially declared August 28th as National Power Rangers Day. This was done in 2018 to commemorate 25 years of the series. It’s a day that will continue to be celebrated as long as people continue to enjoy this television phenomenon.
