About Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day
On this fun day, try to bamboozle people that you meet by pretending to be a time traveler. You can dress up as someone from the past or the future and go about your day pretending you don’t belong. You can marvel at the wonders of the early 21st century, or tut loudly at the lack of basic amenities such as teleportation or flying cars.
This history of this holiday dates back to 2045. See, it's that easy.
In the real timeline, Pretend To Be a Time Traveler Day was started in 2007 by Aaron Diaz of the webcomic Dresden Codak. Those who want to participate in the day should pretend to be time travelers and try to stay in character when they come into contact with people for the entire day.
Dresden Codak suggests three options as to where a time traveler could portray themselves as being from: a utopian or cliché future, a dystopian future, or the past. The utopian or cliché time traveler is to "dress with moderately anachronistic clothing and speak in slang from varying decades." For clothing, they should think about how the future is often portrayed in film and television.
