Now that the holidays are over, it’s the season for resolutions. Some have vowed to exercise more, eat healthier or drink more water, but there are also those that are committed to staying the same and we totally respect that.

Be Bold This Year, Don’t Wear Pants

The No Pants Subway Ride started as a prank by Improv Everywhere, but this day has now become an annual tradition with over 25 countries that take part! Why join? Because it’s fun. Here is the basic premise: “the idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants behave as if they do not know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.”
