Twin tails you like? if so then its time to celebrate - today is officially Twin Tail Day in Japan.
The Japan Anniversary Association has officially declared that Feb the 2nd is "Twin Tail Day" (ツインテールの日)

The Japan Anniversary Association websites explains how today became to be "Twin Tail Day."

The explanation mentions that the hairstyle is admired worldwide and how titles like Sailor Moon and fashion brands have been spreading the appeal of the twin tail. The reason why its Feb the 2nd is because of how 2/2 (Feb 2nd) overlap with each other donating the Twin Tail.

...Sounds like a good reason to celebrate the bodaciousness of twin tails!

There is even a website to promote and feature the wonderful world of Twin Tails - most of it covers only 3D girls at the moment though.

I always keep up with what goes on in Japan through Twitter Trends and discovered that I should have been celebrating all day today ><
But folks in the US still have a day ahead of them to break out the champaign.

Folks in Japan have been celebrating by drawing a load of twin tail girlies - check out this search query.

The Twintail website has been asking us to spread the joy of twin tails and I thought I'd do my duty. This first set of photos is of the lovely Sano Hinako-chan. More photos of her live here.
