Every year on October 3rd, movie and social media fans are immersed in a frenzy of pink, iconic quotes and teenage reminiscences. The reason? It’s “Mean Girls Day,” an unofficial but widely recognized celebration of the acclaimed teen comedy Mean Girls, known in Mexico as Chicas Pesas. But how exactly did this special day come about?
The choice of date stems from a particular scene in the film. During an interaction between characters Aaron Samuels and Cady Heron, he asks her what day it is. Without missing a beat, Cady responds, “It’s October 3rd.” Although it seemed like an inconsequential line at the time, it has grown in importance to become an iconic moment in the film.
