‘Twilight’ has different meanings for different generations. Kristen Baldwin on Twilight Zone Day:
While the “national day” craze has gotten a bit out of hand of late — National Gumdrop Day? National Wiggle Your Toes Day? National Button Day? — today’s quasi-holiday is one we can get behind: Twilight Zone Day. Created to honor Rod Serling’s seminal TV series — which premiered in 1959 — Twilight Zone Day is the perfect time to revisit your favorite Zone moments. But don’t go in blind; there were 156 episodes, after all.
It’s possible that Twilight Zone re-runs started the binge-watching craze.
