Lost Sock Memorial Day

It’s always great to have a bit of fun so we thought we would celebrate something that is probably close to everyone’s heart.

Lost Sock Memorial Day which is held on 9th May.

Everyone and anyone who wears socks, loses at least one of them in their life time – probably actually much more than one, but hey, we all know it happens.

No-one knows where they go. Our theory is they are hiding next to the whit elephant. No-one knows where the white elephant is either so it seems appropriate to surmise that the white elephant and the lost socks would be in the same place.

There have been many theories over the years as to where all the lost socks go, however, we think that this is one mystery that will never be solved.

So, when did Lost Sock Memorial Day start? Who knows (or cares for that matter)? Probably the first day when humans began wearing socks.

Strange don’t you think that when we are left with one odd sock, we render the remaining one as useless. Odd then, many are happy to buy a pair of odd socks because they are trendy. There is no rhyme or reason for this type of thinking, but then, life should never be that serious anyway.

How to celebrate Lost Sock Memorial Day. Have some fun! Why not dig out your odd socks and see what you can make with them. Bunting perhaps, a hand puppet (remember them?), a coffee cup warmer. Their use is endless with a little thought and a bit of tweaking.

We say, just enjoy the day and our photographs of great uses for socks.

If you make something with your odd socks, send us a photo to rosehyslop@layhead.co.uk and we’ll share it with our followers.
