Free the piggies

I’m not saying you should necessarily do anything special with your feet, but it’s No Socks Day and if that leads you to something wonderful, hooray!  All you have to do to celebrate is let those little piggies free.  Well, technically all you have to do to celebrate is let those little piggies free, for an added bonus you should make sure your piggies are free worthy.  Now, if you have a toe length abnormality, there isn’t much you can do about that, but if your abnormality is accompanied by dirty toenails, ash and enough foot-1575105_1280dead skin for a 6th toe, you should handle that before celebrating today.

Technically, today is only calling for you to release your toes from the bondage of socks, stockings, and tights.  You aren’t in violation if you are wearing sandals or shoes without socks.  Keep that last part in mind if your feet are gross.  If you have a foot fetish, the odds are in your favor today.  If feet totally wig you out, the odds are in your favor too, just not in a good way.  If you’re looking for ways to honor the feet that get you from A to B and the toes that keep you balanced, a massage or pedicure are in order.

An added bonus for the environment is that No Socks Day will lighten your laundry load and save about six droplets of water in your next wash.  Yeah, you’ve done a good deed for the week.  You’re such the philanthropist.  Have fun and…


But what’s your point?

For all the conspiracy theorists who have claimed for years that holidays are publicity stunts created by different organizations, the media, and greeting card companies; you’re right!  But, what’s your point? Creating an actual national holiday literally requires and act of congress and if they can’t pass a budget, what makes you think to create National Fruit Fly Day would make it to the top of their list?

So, yes, basically most holidays are created by making a strong declaration and getting others to buy into it (pun intended).  Which brings me to today’s holiday – It’s Make Up Your Own Holiday Day! So, if you search the internet and find someone forgot to nationally recognize Food Theater and you are extremely passionate about potatoes with personality, declare today National Food Theater Day.

I’m declaring today National Striped Sock Day.   stripped-socks-1178643_1280

Don’t judge, choose what makes you feel good and declare your own National holiday. Who cares if you end up celebrating alone in your closet surrounded by striped socks.

On the other hand, if you’re actually interested in initiating an act of congress, I found this document but didn’t read it in its entirety because I wasn’t that interested.  If you are, be my guest.

Have fun and holiday on my friends!

What are you celebrating? Let me know!
