Clamp on your foil hat and cower under your bed, Alien Abduction Day is here!
March 20 is Alien Abduction Day, when “the skies are carefully watched by those expecting / wishing to be abducted by an alien life form,” states eHow.com.
The strange holiday’s origins are unclear, though it was clearly popularized by the 2008 Alien Abduction Day festival in Toronto.
The festival was an all around sci-fi street party in Toronto, sponsored by a comic book shop and several local businesses.
But references online exist to the even from years earlier — and watch for Twitter to heat up Saturday with the #AlienAbductionDay tag.
