31st Jan each year

Date: January 31 Origin: Mad Magazine artist Don Martin created the idea of Gorilla Suit Day for a 1963 comic strip in which a character mocks the holiday and is then assaulted by gorillas and people in gorilla suits. Since that time, the holiday has been semi-celebrated every year by fans of Mad Magazine and Don Martin by dressing up in a gorilla suit. In 2007, Martin’s widow asked one of the holiday’s biggest cheerleaders, writer Mark Evanier, to cease promoting it and to remove all mentions of Gorilla Suit Day from his website.
