Why Men Celebrate the 5th of July

Forget about July 4th especially if you are a guy. July 5th is the day we should be celebrating. Why?  

It was 66 years ago today the the world’s first bikini made its debut at a poolside fashion show in Paris, France.  Its revealing debut brought such an uproar that even the French fashion models refused to wear it.  So the original designer, Louis Reard, had to enlist strippers in 1946 to model it.

The skimpy swimsuit eventually started to gain acceptance to where it is now a beachfront staple.  It’s name, bikini, came from the American atomic detonation on Bikini Atoll which was considered the ultimate of destruction.  Reard named it bikini to reflect his concept of the “ultimate” in swimsuits.

Lets face it, Hog Back Island, beaches and pools sure look better with bikini clad women around. One piece suits look pretty darn good too!  Thanks Louis Reard for making life worth living.
