International Bikini Day

France, July 5, 1946 - In the past year and a half, I've discovered that there are actually plenty of things to like about France, but perhaps France's all-time greatest contribution to world culture is the bikini. It was 61 years ago today in Paris that the first true bikini, created by automotive engineer and genius visionary hero Louis Réard, was unveiled.

Well, however you decide to celebrate, here's wishing you a happy International Bikini Day!
