National Sock Day
National Sock Day on December 4th recognizes the rarest of all lasting unities, the marriage of matched socks. When they manage to find each other, wash after wash, dry after to dry, it’s time to celebrate!
The founders of the celebration turned the tables on other sock holidays. Such individualism generated was out of control. Days like National No Sock Day on May 8th and National Lost Sock Day (for shame!) on May 9th were rebels.
In an effort to promote lasting sock matches, the observance dedicated the day to all pairs, even the tiny baby socks who manage to stay paired. We don’t know if it’s animal magnetism (static cling) or chemistry (something in the detergent), these sock pairs deserve recognition!
The day honors all matches made in laundromantic-matrimony. No color, style or size will be turned away. Argyle to tube socks, knee highs, and fuzzy slipper socks – if they keep finding their mate over and over, this National Day wiggles its toes in their honor!
