The origin of the word “Rag” according to the Oxford English Dictionary is “an act of ragging; especially, an extensive display of noisy disorderly conduct carried on in defiance of authority or discipline”.
Much more recently, monetary donations have been integrated into this activity. Rag Day displays have seen passers-by “ragged” until they made a donation.
In the United Kingdom, Rag Day is an activity carried out by student-run charity organizations and are widespread in Britain. Most universities in the UK and Ireland, as well as some in the Netherlands and South Africa, observe the Rag Day.
The first tertiary institution to introduce the Rag Day in South Africa was the University of Pretoria in 1925. It is referred to as “The Procession” and is still carried out today.
