You're Not A True 'Mean Girls' Fan Unless You Know What Day It Is

You're Not A True 'Mean Girls' Fan Unless You Know What Day It Is

Time to wear pink and quote "Mean Girls" all day long.


In 2004, we were all introduced to the comedy "Mean Girls" which is an iconic film starring Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron, a girl who was once homeschooled in Africa to now finding her place in North Shore High School.

Also, (fun fact) Tina Fey who stars as Cady's math teacher, Ms. Norbury, wrote "Mean Girls."

Cady faces a variety of ups and downs from befriending some school "outsiders," to then going undercover and being a part of "The Plastics," and eventually becoming the most popular girl at North Shore.

Now you're probably wondering why is today, of all days, "Mean Girls" Day? If you aren't a die-hard "Mean Girls" fan, then I'm here to let you know how October 3rd became such a special day dedicated towards this movie.

During all of Cady's new beginnings and "friendships", we are also introduced to one of North Shore's hotties, Aaron Samuels, who is Regina's (the superior plastic) ex-boyfriend. This is where things start to really get tough for Cady because she starts to develop feelings for Aaron, who is very much off limits based on the rules from "The Plastics."

Now we're getting to where October 3rd comes into play.

Since the ongoing high school crush, Cady does everything in her power to get Aaron's attention and thrives off the smallest interactions with him especially since he sits in front of her in math class.

He asks her for a pencil, let's her know that it's raining, and then one day a real conversation starter happened…he asked what the date was. Yes, ladies & gentleman, you guessed it.

"It's October 3rd," Cady replied, proudly with a grin from ear to ear.

Ever since October 3rd has been a day full of saying "That's so fetch," and "FOUR for you Glen Coco, You GO Glen Coco!"

Now, this October 3rd not only is it your duty to talk all things "Mean Girls," but you also are required to wear pink. Why wear pink? Because this October 3rd falls on a Wednesday, and "on Wednesdays, we wear pink."

This rule among many others was supposed to be followed by "The Plastics," if they sat at their lunch table. This was one of Regina's way to keep a strong hierarchy in the cafeteria, and there was even a map drawn out by Janice and Damian, Cady's "outsider" friends to portray who sits where.

This is obviously not a national holiday, but rather a way to keep such a riveting movie alive to this day. I mean how can you not love the classic high school movie that involves the cliché cliques such as jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, and hot chicks.

Celebrate this day by integrating "Mean Girls" references in your activities. Pick up your friend from class and yell "Get in Loser, we're going shopping," or explain your outfit by saying "I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops, so I bought army pants and flip-flops."

Happy "Mean Girls" Day!

13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.


These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

2. "About Time"

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

3. "Like Crazy"

This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

4. "The Notebook"

Every girl wants this kind of love.

5. "The Last Song"

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

6. "Safe Haven"

You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

7. "Inside Out"

You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

8. "The Choice"

This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

9. "The Longest Ride"

Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

10. "The Age Of Adaline"

I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

11. "The Vow"

Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

12. "Titanic"

If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

You're welcome!
