    Friday, July 13, is not only the day Jason Voorhees decided to enact revenge on his camp counselors, it’s also Embrace Your Geekness Day!


    What is a geek? According to Webster’s Dictionary, a geek is a knowledgeable and obsessive enthusiast of a particular subject, i.e. computer geek. That means everyone is a geek. If you love something so much that you need to know everything about it, sleep, eat, and breathe it…you are a geek! Embrace it!


    In the past 20 years, geek culture has taken over the mainstream, with shows like The Big Bang Theory, Silicon Valley and The Guild. It is cool now to be a geek and more importantly, it shows that hard work, intelligence and being an enthusiast pays off and makes you a more interesting person. We here at the Phillyfunguide enjoy and participate in geek culture. Join us by embracing these geeky events this month!



    Share your Geek Day photos with us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram @Phillyfunguide!
