Mean Girls Day Date in the current year: October 3, 2020

Mean Girls Day October 3 has been dubbed on social media as Mean Girls Day. It is a holiday for all Mean Girls fans, who spend the day re-watching their favorite teen comedy film and quoting all the iconic lines.

Mean Girls is a 2004 film written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark Waters. It introduced Amanda Seyfried in her film debut, turned out a breakthrough for Rachel McAdams, and cemented Lindsay Lohan’s status as a rising movie star. The film about the effects of high school social cliques on girls grossed $129 million worldwide and received positive reviews from critics (its approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes is 84%).

Unlike many teen comedies that get forgotten as soon as their theatrical run is over, Mean Girls became a pop-culture phenomenon and developed a cult following. It has been quoted and referenced numerous times, sometimes by the most unlikely social media accounts like the White House and the Israeli embassy in the United States. A Mean Girls game for PC was released in 2009, and a musical adaptation of the movie premiered in 2017 and opened on Broadway the next year.

Mean Girl Day is celebrated on October 3 because the date is referenced in the film. Aaron (Jonathan Bennett), the main character’s love interest, asks her what day it is, and Cadie (Lindsay Lohan) replies, “It’s October 3rd.” How do fans celebrate it? Of course, by re-watching Mean Girls for the millionth time, but also by wearing pink, posting their favorite quotes and GIFs on social media, and going to Taco Bell or eating cheese fries (two more references from the movie).
