DEEP DIVE

Mean Girls Day is a day dedicated to the celebration of all things fetch. On October 3rd, Mean Girls fans choose to wear pink in recognition of ‘the plastics‘ rule that “on Wednesdays we wear pink.” Last year, October 3rd, 2018 happened to be a Wednesday, making it an extra special Mean Girls Day for fans.

If you don’t have the time to rewatch all of Mean Girls, be sure to at least watch the thank u, next music video, which is a star-studded tribute to some of the film’s most iconic moments.

Mean Girls Day is on October 3rd because, in the film, Lindsay Lohan’s character recalls a scene where her crush, Aaron Samuels, asks her what day it is and she responds, “it’s October 3rd.”

This year Tina Fey will and Busy Phillips will be hosting a Mean Girls watch party on Facebook Live at 8 pm EST.
