September 13 - International Sit on Your Head Day
To celebrate the first airing of the TV show Mork and Mindy, the city of Hygiene, CO started International Sit on Your Head day in 1982.
Many people know Mork as the cooky alien that landed near Boulder, CO and lived with Mindy to learn human customs. What is little known is that Mork actually touched down in Hygiene. Hygiene, sick of all the atttention Boulder recieved because of the show, decided to reclaim the alien with International Sit on Your Head Day to honor their first celebrity and generate tourism.
