Happy Time Travel Day!

For those of you who may have missed it, October 26th is official Time Travel Day. In fact, today marks the 25th anniversary of the first trip in time, at least by a Delorean fitted with the flux capacitor invented by the now famous Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown.

In the original Back to the Future (1985) film, Marty is accidentally sent back in time over 30 years on October 26th, 1985. That makes today the 25th anniversary of Marty's trip. Of course, Doc's dog Einstein makes the first trip in time to exactly one minute into the future, but Marty is the first human time traveler. For 25 years, Marty, Doc, Jennifer, and a score of others have been entertaining us with warmth, humor, and adventure as they get themselves into and out of the messes caused by having access to a time machine. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

So hop in your Deloreans, get ready to speed up to 88 miles per hour, and we can all meet and party in 1999, just for giggles.

Oh, another anniversary is fast approaching. On November 5th, 1955, Marty arrived as the first time traveler to visit the past in the Doc's Delorean. That'll make November 5th this year the 55th anniversary of this event. Of course, it's also the day Doc Brown invented time travel.

Anyone up for partying at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance?
