DALLAS (KDAF) — No matter who you are, or what you’re doing it’s always a fun time to try something new, and a staple in fashion for hundreds of years is the simple act of getting your ears pierced!

What better time to do it than on a holiday weekend as Friday, September 2 is Pierce Your Ears Day! You can get your ears pierced over Labor Day Weekend, show up to work on Tuesday morning, and wow your coworkers with your new look.

NationalToday explains, “This holiday spreads awareness about ear piercing, including the ritual and historical aspects of this body modification.
