Two reasons.
Purple is one of my least favorite color, therefore I have no clothes in that color.
And it's national statistics day, so my department is all wearing stat shirts.

And when I say national, I mean world.

October 20th is a popular day. It's also Big Block of Cheese Day (West Wings Fans and potus_geeks will know what this is all about) and I already had a shirt bought especially for this occasion, but I opted to wear purple today instead because I thought that to be the more important of the two to me.

I didn't say I don't support the cause, and I support anyone who chose to wear purple.
My department is just super excited that's first world statistics day, declared by the UN, basically to show the achievements the world has of official statistics has helped to entire world. There's so much information out there that goes ignored, or people don't realize that statistics does help them.

No I didn't interpret your answer as being against this idea, and hope my comment didn't come across as being critical of you in any way.
