National Sock Day on December 4 recognizes the rarest of all lasting unities, the marriage of matched socks. When they manage, wash after wash, dry after to dry to keep finding each other through all the chaos, a celebration is certainly in order!

The founders of National Sock Day turned the tables on holidays that brought attention to such individualism like National No Sock Day on May 8th and National Lost Sock Day (for shame!) on May 9th.  In an effort to promote the sock couples who remain together, whether animal magnetism (static cling) or chemistry (something in the detergent), National Sock Day is dedicated to highlighting even the tiny baby socks who manage to stay together.

We honor all matches made in laundromantic-matromony.  From Argyle to tube socks, knee highs and fuzzy slipper socks, if they keep finding their mate over and over, National Sock Day wiggles its toes in their honor!

HOW TO OBSERVE

Share your rare pairs of socks by using #NationalSockDay on social media.

Civil rights activist Rosa Parks (February 4, 1913 to October 24, 2005) refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a segregated Montgomery, Alabama bus, which spurred on the 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott that helped launch nationwide efforts to end segregation of public facilities. The city of Montgomery had no choice but to lift the law requiring segregation on public buses. Rosa Parks received many accolades during her lifetime, including the NAACP’s highest award.
