National Lost Sock Memorial Day is celebrated on May 9 of every year. The day is celebrated to commemorate the Lost Socks. It is a perfect day to say “good-bye” to all of the single socks, the ones where their mates have been missed to the unknown. Several mysteries in life are as confusing as the mystery of missing socks. No matter how high you are trying to keep the pairs of socks together, regularly, one of them attempts out into the world, never to be found again.

“At Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet Academy, I studied under a brilliant and fiery teacher. This tiny, stuttering old man flew into a rage if his students’ white socks failed to reach mid-calf level. Nor could he tolerate floppy hair. We wore hairnets to class – an athletic brigade of short order cooks.” – Sascha Radetsky

History of National Lost Sock Memorial Day

The creator or Founder of the day is still unknown. Many devotees of the day hint that “take the day as an opportunity to clean out your sock drawers and answer good-bye to the nostalgic widows and sorrowful singles.” The sock is an item of clothing worn on the feet. The foot is the heaviest producer of sweat in the body. Wearing socks will help in absorbing the sweat and draw it to the areas where the air can evaporate the perspiration. Socks will decrease the risk of frostbite at the time of cold environments. Socks can be manufactured in a variety of lengths. The day was first held two days later when Og left to find the sock his cave mother-in-law knitted for him.
