World Goth Day 2019: May 22 is celebrated as World Goth Day. The day is defined by the Official World Goth Day site as “a day where the Goth scene gets to celebrate its own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world.”
World Goth Day was created in the United Kingdom in the year 2009. BBC Radio 6 was viewing at a number of music subcultures all over a week in May, comprising Goth music. Goth DJs Cruel Britannia as well as Martin Oldgoth got an event up and running. It was then decided that May 22 is going to be the day when this event would be held repeatedly.
The tradition carried on and spread outside the United Kingdom, with a website being started to organize and advertise events internationally.
Best Ways to Celebrate World Goth Day
Support Your Local Goth Bands
You must be known to the saying that “if you don’t use it, you lose it”. On this special occasion, find out about your local goth night and go there in order to support your local goth bands and buy from your local goth shops.
Indulge in New Gothic Sounds
Goth has continuously been about the music so on this amazing occasion crack out those dark tunes and pile up your very personal individual playlist. Find out some new bands, strange weird covers, and obscure tracks, and mix them up with old classics from the past of your goth favorites such as Bauhaus, Fields Of The Nephilim and The Sisters Of Mercy. Turn up the volume high and enjoy your personal made playlist.
Support a Noble Cause
A charity may possibly not spontaneously scream goth but there are a number of great goth-friendly associations that are desperate for your cash in order to carry on their good work. Use World Goth Day as a golden chance to make a contribution to the organization which fights against image-based bias and hate.
The goth subgroup is one of the most innovative all around the world, so take the day in order to make a bit new; whether it’s a piece of gothic jewels or apparel, a work of art or even a number of new music. Just get stirred and let your innovative juices to run black, purple and red.
Dress to Excess
There’s no contradicting that image marks a great role in goth, and World Goth Day is a great occasion to demonstrate the world that goth is still alive and kicking. Re-dye your pale blacks, polish your New Rocks, press or shave your hair, brush up your black eyeliner and sing This Corrosion at the top of your blackened lungs.
Hold a Goth Picnic
If you like to go out and enjoy the natural beauty then arrange a goth picnic with friends in your local park or garden. Make some spooky food like bat-shaped cookies or purple popcorn, pack your much-loved Halloween glasses, maybe even a goth card game or two and delight in the company. Also, do take your litter away with you as tarnishing the environment is not the goth way.
