What Is Meme Day Spirit Week?

Meme Day during Spirit Week is hands down my absolute favorite day of the entire week. It’s that one day when my inner meme enthusiast gets to shine, and I can let my creativity run wild!

So, what is Meme Day exactly? Well, it’s a day during Spirit Week at our school where we get to dress up as our favorite internet memes, viral sensations, or even create our own hilarious meme-inspired outfits. It’s all about embracing the internet culture and having a blast while doing it.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to come to school dressed up as the “Distracted Boyfriend” meme, complete with a red construction paper heart and everything? Or maybe you want to channel your inner “Woman Yelling at a Cat” and recreate that iconic showdown with your friends. The possibilities are endless!

The best part is seeing everyone’s creativity shine through. We’ve got Pepe the Frog, “Two Buttons,” “This Is Fine” dog, and even the “Mocking SpongeBob” meme making appearances. It’s like a live meme museum right in our school hallways!

Meme Day is not just about costumes, though. We also have meme-themed contests, like caption competitions and even a “Guess That Meme” challenge. It’s a day filled with laughter, inside jokes, and of course, plenty of photo ops for our social media feeds.

Iconic Meme Day Ideas For A Hilarious Spirit Week

I saved the icons for last. These are just some of the most influential memes that have ever graced our screens. So anything that you pick from this list will be a hit.

21. “Distracted Boyfriend” 

In this meme, there are three characters: the boyfriend, the girlfriend, and the other woman. Participants can dress up as these characters and carry cardboard signs that replicate the meme. The boyfriend should be looking at the other woman while the girlfriend looks on disapprovingly. This meme often has text captions, so consider adding some humorous captions to your signs!

22. “SpongeBob SquarePants” 

Choose your favorite characters from the beloved cartoon show, “SpongeBob SquarePants.” Whether you go as SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, or Mr. Krabs, make sure to capture their distinctive looks. SpongeBob might require a yellow sponge-like outfit, while Patrick could be a pink starfish.

23. “Kermit the Frog Sipping Tea” 

To recreate this meme, everyone should dress in green outfits like Kermit the Frog. Hold a teacup and sip it with an expression of indifference or wisdom. You can also carry a cardboard sign with the famous “But that’s none of my business” phrase.

24. “Woman Yelling at a Cat” 

This meme combines two images, one of a woman angrily pointing and another of a confused cat. Participants can dress as either the woman in the red shirt or the cat, with exaggerated facial expressions and gestures. Print out a large version of the meme for reference.

25. “Doge” 

Embrace the popular Doge meme by dressing up in Shiba Inu-themed outfits, complete with dog ears and perhaps a “Doge” sign. Speak in broken English phrases, like “such wow” and “much (adjective),” to mimic the Doge meme’s language.

26. “Arthur Fist” 

Arthur from the TV show “Arthur” expresses his frustration by clenching his fist. Wear yellow sweaters and make angry fists with your hand as a fun and recognizable costume.

27. “The Office” 

Choose your favorite characters from “The Office” and dress accordingly. You can recreate famous scenes or quotes from the show. For example, you could be Jim and carry a sign that reads “Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica.” I am going to have to add this to my character day spirit week ideas.

28. “Epic Handshake” 

Find a friend to participate with you and recreate the epic handshake meme, like the one from the movie “Predator.” Practice the handshake and act out the dramatic scene as accurately as possible.

29. “Two Buttons” 

Create shirts with two large buttons on them—one labeled “Yes” and the other “No.” This meme is all about decision-making, so you can humorously respond to questions throughout the day by pointing to one of the buttons.

30. “Area 51 Raid” 

In reference to the infamous “Storm Area 51” event, participants can dress up as aliens or government agents. Alien costumes could include green skin and extraterrestrial accessories, while government agents might wear dark suits and sunglasses.

31. “Ight, Imma Head Out” 

For this meme, wear your regular school uniform but add a sign or a prop that says “Ight, Imma Head Out.” Carry your backpack and act as if you’re ready to leave, imitating the meme’s sentiment of wanting to exit a situation.

So as you can see, Meme Day Spirit Week is a fantastic opportunity to let our imaginations run wild and bring internet culture to life in our school. From classic memes to creating our own unique viral moments, it’s a day filled with laughter, creativity, and a sense of community.

Whether you’re dressing up as the latest viral sensation or paying homage to a timeless meme, embrace the spirit of Meme Day, and get ready for a day of unforgettable fun that will leave everyone saying, “That was epic!”
