Lost And Found Day is celebrated on the second Friday of every December. This year it will be celebrated on December 9. In the so far life we have lived, there might be so many situations or at least a few times we would have lost so many things. And at times, we would have found them. The day is celebrated to encourage you to make some efforts to find the things that you have lost. The observance of this Day also spurs you to return those things you found to those people who had lost them.
“Everything. Things you lost. Things you’re gonna lose. Everything. Here’s where it all ties together.” – Haruki Murakami
