Image Credit: Cliff Lipson/CBSToday we all have How I Met Your Mother to thank for the latest holiday to take the Internet by storm. Fans of HIMYM have borrowed Barney Stinson’s catchphrase — “Suit up!” — and declared Oct. 13 International Suit Up Day. Celebrating this new holiday is simple — all you really need to do is wear a suit anywhere you’re going today. Wear one to work, to school, to your favorite bar (bonus points if you drink at a bar called MacLaren’s), or even on the couch at home all day. (Think of Barney’s suit pajamas!) The websites InternationalSuitUpDay.com and SuitUpDay.com have even offered simple suggestions for those of us who do not own suits — buy a suit (duh) or just watch How I Met Your Mother. Who else plans on rewatching Monday’s instant-classic “Subway Wars” episode?
Not convinced that a suit is the perfect choice of attire for whatever you do today? Watch Barney’s ode to the suit, his fantastic “Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit” musical number from HIMYM, and maybe feel compelled to celebrate today — the right way.
Are you going to be participating in Suit Up Day, PopWatchers? Which other TV holidays or catch phrases would you like to see in reality?
