AMERICAN TOUCH TAG DAY
American Touch Tag Day celebrates a traditional game that is remembered by most of us from our childhood, as we spent our time playing outside at recess, after school and on weekends. October 8 is the annual celebration of American Touch Tag Day and can be celebrated by getting out in the fresh air, running around and tagging someone.
Dating back to ancient Rome, this game has been played worldwide with a variety of names as well as a variety of game rules. Typically it involves a player running around, chasing other players, in an attempt to “tag” or touch them. Most forms of this game have no teams, scores, or equipment.
