Let’s Celebrate 2012 World Zombie Day!

World Zombie Day is upon us! Okay, let’s face it. While vampires and mummies and werewolves are cool, what Halloween season would be complete without zombies? We love zombies! We have to. We’re pretty sure we work with a couple of ’em! In honor of some of our undead employees and co-workers, we figured we’d celebrate their… particular challenges. After all, zombies are were people, too!

If you didn’t know it, The World Zombie Day is the international zombie memorial day which takes place every 2nd Saturday of October. It’s the perfect day to crawl growling into the office or to get in touch with other zombie-lovers on one of the many worldwide organized zombie walks.

If you’re going to participate in one of the many zombie walks on World Zombie Day, just know that we’re thinking about you, and all of us at Floozees Doozees hope you have a great time and remain safe. And remember, if you come across one of our customers who might have purchased one of our “Zombie Friendly – Do Not Eat” t-shirts, we’d appreciate it if you’d give them a pass and not eat their brains.

The earliest zombie walk on record was held on August 19, 2001 in Sacramento, California. The event, billed as “The Zombie Parade,” was the brain-child of Bryna Lovig, who suggested it to the organizers of The Trash Film Orgy as a way to promote their annual midnight film festival. It was held again on July 27, 2002, and has since become an annual event, drawing over 1000 participants in 2012.

Zombie walks have become relatively common in large cities throughout the world, but especially in North America, often becoming annual traditions. Some are also spontaneous “flash mob” events or performance art. Many zombie walks in the United States have been “hunger marches”, whereby the intention is to raise awareness on the issue of world hunger. Promoted primarily through word of mouth and online message boards, zombie walks are an underground activity. During the event participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior.
