‘Short Trousers Day’ for Václav Havel

I must say that I am kind of enjoying it. I say to myself that it’s a nice and gentle way to ridicule myself.

Václav Havel

How will you honour the late president of the Czech Republic and one of the key figures of the Velvet Revolution, Václav Havel, on the anniversary of his death? His supporters suggest to wear short trousers.

They write: “We were inspired by an episode from the beginning of his presidency, when he appeared in public several times wearing noticeably short trousers. Havel was often interviewed about it and he regarded the episode as quite humorous.”

If you like to join, mark the 18 December in your calendars and get your pants ready.
