DALLAS, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- The Dallas founder of Working Naked Day said the event, observed Tuesday, is aimed at helping those who work at home to cut loose.
Lisa Kanarek, a business consultant who created the Feb. 1 mock holiday last year, is "dedicated to those who are working from home 'naked' -- stripped of the resources that millions take for granted in the traditional corporate workplace," AOL News reported Tuesday.
"Let's have fun," she said. "We work at home, and there isn't anyone there with us, so we can work naked, literally and figuratively."
The holiday has caught on with many home-based workers, including Houston education marketer Laura Milligan.
"At first, I thought no, but now I think, 'Why the hell not?'" Milligan, 26, said. "I might do it out of solidarity, for all the other home workers out there."
