What Day Should Mission: Impossible Day Fall On?
There's a couple of good candidates for when Mission: Impossible Day could be officially observed. We could go with August 18, as that’s Ethan Hunt’s official birthday. Or, if we really wanted to get cute, we could say March 16, in honor of the “Job 3:16” gag in Mission: Impossible’s first cinematic mission. But for convenience, and because it’s actually pretty close on the calendar, we’ll go with the opening date of Mission: Impossible back in 1996, which means May 22 should now be circled on your calendar.
