About the Holiday

International Town Criers Day celebrates the important court-appointed town criers. The tradition came from the British as back then this was the only way people found out the latest news as many, back then, were illiterate. Since being replaced by the newspaper, Town Criers spoke on behalf of the rulers and their safety was key as killing a town crier was treason and often punishable by death. Hence the term "Don't shoot the messenger".

So today, loudly and clearly announce whatever information others should know like "by official degree of me it is dinner time" or loudly announce your local news, new product release, weather update, any seemingly pertinent information.
