The date of the holiday was chosen December 5 to mark the release of Tom Cruise's film The Last Samurai. There was a scene where samurai battled ninja, however the theme of the holiday shifted towards the conflict Pirates vs. Ninja, and Day of the Ninja became a counterpart to International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19.
The first celebration of Day of the Ninja didn't attract much attention, but the next year it was supported by a group from France, who staged elaborate ninja poses in front of the French landmarks, thus the event received a coverage from the media.
