9 May – Lost Sock Memorial Day

 

Lost Sock Memorial Day - Elizabeth Place

May 9 recognises a fun and unique holiday: Lost Sock Memorial Day. It is time to say “good-bye” to all of the single socks, the ones whose 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!
