It’s Oct. 3, and it’s a Wednesday. That’s right, today is officially Mean Girls day, and fans worldwide are wearing pink to celebrate.

If you have no clue why your entire office is dressed in pink, let us explain. In the 2004 comedy Mean Girls, 16-year-old Cady Heron gushes about telling her crush Aaron Samuels that it’s Oct. 3, turning the day itself into a meme. Then there’s the popular clique “the Plastics,” who invites Cady to sit with them every day for lunch, warning her that they wear pink on Wednesdays.

Here’s the two scenes in question if you want to keep up with the jokes:

Pretty simple, right? For the record, Oct. 3 hasn’t fallen on a Wednesday since 2012, so today is quite the holiday for Mean Girls fans everywhere. The tweets are already going viral.

Online, Twitter users are sharing their pink outfits for the day too, from selfies to group shots.

Even Netflix is joining in on the fun, sort of.

A couple Twitter users have their own spin on the day, too, such as this adorable queer Oct. 3 photoshoot.

Plenty of men are breaking out incredibly stylish pink outfits, too.


As fans wrap up Mean Girls day, the Miss Congeniality fandom is counting down the weeks to April 25, when it’s not too hot, not too cold, and all you need is a light jacket.
