Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always observed on November 16
Button Day, a November 16 holiday, is a fun day to collect, use, and just enjoy buttons. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. There is an amazingly endless variety for your collection.
But, wait a minute…. is that the meaning of this day!? Maybe, the purpose of this day is to wear buttons. You know, those diverse buttons that send a message for political purposes. Or, ones that have funny sayings. Or, one with a smiley face to cheer everyone up.
The origins of this day are unknown. So, we can’t be certain of the real meaning of this day. And, that could be a good thing. It means you can celebrate today in any way you want.
