Alien day is a great day to recognize and appreciate the wonderful world of the Alien(s).

The first film released in 1979 and lasted more than 40 years was its beginning; Alien including numerous films, books, and games has been an intense, unique, and engaging look at the question of whether other life exists in the universe.

History of Alien Day

Alien Day was created by a Sci-Fi subculture of people who wanted to celebrate more than just the Alien series. The first celebration of Alien Day was commemorated unofficially in the spring of 2015 by a group of people in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

The choice of Alien Day makes it significant. 4/26 recommended to the name of the moon in the first Alien movie. LV-426 is the name of the moon where the xenomorphs were discovered in the movie year 1979 by Ridley Scott.

Starting in 2016, Alien Day began as a more formal celebration when Alien film producer, 20th Century Fox, joined in sponsoring the day's events. One of the events of that year was a 24-hour trivia challenge. In addition, it is considered as the most significant year be similar to the 30th anniversary of the release of the Alien sequel, Aliens.

The idea and hope for Aliens Day is that more people around the world can learn about this great day and celebrate the wonderful world of Alien(s). And that continues to be true as Alien Day is now recognized and loved by Sci-Fi fans around the world!
