    May 9 recognizes a fun and unique holiday, National Lost Sock Memorial Day.  It is time to say “good-bye” to all of the single socks, the ones where their mates have been lost to the unknown.  Where do all the missing socks go?  Is there a washing machine heaven?  This is a question that people have been trying to solve for many centuries.  An answer may never be found to this problem, and life will go on.  How sad to have lost such a close-knit friend!

    Of course, since before the dawn of Tupperware, inventors have attempted the prevention of such separation anxiety. Alas, if they had succeeded mismatched socks wouldn’t be popular today. And, we there wouldn’t be National Lost Sock Memorial Day.


    Now is the time to let go and move on.  Clean out all of your left behind socks. Make sock puppets or recycle those old socks by reusing them as dust rags!  Say your final goodbyes to your lost socks using #LostSockMemorialDay.
