Lost Sock Day
When is Lost Sock Day? This event is always observed on May 9
Lost Sock Memorial Day, a May 9 holiday, recognizes your drawer full of unmatched socks. Each unmatched sock represents a missing sock. We never throw away our unmatched socks. After all, they may show up someday.
On Lost Sock Memorial Day, we suggest you spend a little time (as little as possible) searching for those missing socks. After a (very) brief search, and in good “Memorial” spirit, spend a minute reflecting upon how warm and comforting the missing socks were on your stinky toes. Then, by all means, get on with your life.
We encourage you to use this special day, to toss out all of your unmatched socks. Let’s face it, you’re never gonna find the missing one.
How to Celebrate Lost Sock Day
To get the most out of this holiday, here are some things you can do:
- Put out an APB for your missing socks.
- Begin an exhaustive search for them.
- Toss out your unmatched socks. It’s the most sensible thing to do.
- Wear two unmatched socks. You might as well get some use out of them.
