When is Pins and Needles Day? This holiday is always observed on November 27

We understand how you can be on edge today. It’s because this is Pins and Needles Day. The original intent of this holiday is to commemorate the opening of the pro-Labor play Pins and Needles on Broadway on this day in 1937. Over decades, people lost track of the original meaning of this November 27 holiday. 

Today, most people look upon Pins and Needles Day, as a nervous and anxious day. It’s a day of eager anticipation, as we await an event or for something to happen. One could argue that kids are on pins and needles from now until Christmas, as they nervously wonder if they have been good enough to receive a visit from Santa in a few weeks.

Of all the special days on the calendar, this is a nerve-racking day. You are on pins and needles until that special future event successfully unfolds. And, if it doesn’t………. well we will just think positively.

We hope you have a happy, and calm, and relaxing Pins and Needles Day!

How to Celebrate Pins and Needles Day
