People seem curious about rage day. Since it’s so far off, I can’t disclose the full details yet, but here is some background.
Two freinds, who will remain unnamed for now, were sitting in a German class one day, watching videos of German festivals such as Oktoberfest, Karnival, etc. and realized that, although some southern states have things like Mardi Gras, the midwest- Minnesota in particular- does not have its own “Beerfest” style day (or days) of partying.
And there’s a long time between Winter and Spring breaks.
So why not throw in a party holiday to look forward to between those two- just to break up the monotony during second semester?
So that’s the background. It’s not about raging on people or taking out anger, although that could definitely be a part of your rage day (they chose rage because epic was overused). The people who made it want colleges to make it their own and use their imagination.
Oh, and there’s rules for rage day:
1. Das Boot must be present at every party on Rage Day.
2. If you can remember Rage Day, it has not been successful.
More to come soon…
