Okay, for someone like me who is a fan but not nearly as up to date as the serious fans, what is June 23rd? I know it's Joss Whedon's birthday but ...

Is it Mutant Enemy Day?
Is it Browncoats Day?

Or is it something different each year and not at all like "Towel Day" for Douglas Adams fans?

Serenity Day. They have several charity screenings of the Big Damn Movie in cities all over the world. If you're not near one, like me, order some Chinese food and watch it.

Wouldn't Serenity Day be Sept. 30? Or is that Serenity Movie Day?

From the Firefly Wikipedia page:

On June 23, 2006 fans organized the first worldwide charity screenings of Serenity in 47 cities, dubbed as Can’t Stop the Serenity or CSTS, an homage to the movie’s tagline, "Can’t stop the signal."[64] The event raised over $65,000[65] for Whedon's favorite charity, Equality Now. In 2007, $106,000 was raised,[66]; in 2008, $107,219; in 2009, $137,331[67].

Another campaign on June 23, 2006 referred to the date as Serenity Day,[68] on which fans bought—and got others to buy—copies of the Serenity and Firefly DVDs in hopes of convincing Universal that creating a sequel was a good business decision. On this day, Serenity and Firefly were ranked second and third, respectively, on the DVD Best Sellers list. The dates for both campaigns were chosen because it is series creator Joss Whedon’s birthday.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Happy Serenity Day browncoats!

It's the Second Annual Happy Talk Like a Browncoat Day, U-Day and Joss Whedon's Birthday all rolled into one!

For those not in the know, today is Joss Whedon's Birthday, which many people celebrate as Talk Like a Browncoat Day and still others celebrate as U-Day (due to the historical end of the Civil War*).

Happy Birthday, Joss!



*On June 23, 1865, at Fort Towson in the Choctaw Nations' area of the Oklahoma Territory, Stand Watie signed a cease-fire agreement with Union representatives, becoming the last Confederate general in the field to stand down.

Thanks for the info, guys.

I reckon that's what happens when you ask a bunch of Browncoats to agree on a single name to commemorate a day ... everyone picks their favorite and sticks to it.

Whatever you call it, have a good one.
