How many days until No Socks Day?


No Socks Day is your chance to free your feet from socks and stockings and give your toes a breath of fresh air.

All people around the world are interested in wearing a soft and beautiful pair of socks. It's a great invention to protect your feet from the sun and keep them cozy all day. A perfect invention for the winter months!

Wearing socks is the best way to keep your feet warm and protected. But do you know what? Socks can be uncomfortable, especially in the scorching summer heat. Well, sometimes all you need is to let your feet go!

To give you that freedom, fun-loving holidaymakers have introduced Sock No Day, which is a good chance for you to let your feet loose.

No Socks Day is when people around the world enjoy the beautiful sand at their feet, enjoy the music and share the best moments with their friends. It is the day to free your laundry from a pair of socks. Forget the Birkenstock socks and stockings of the Pacific Northwest fools, No Sock Day is your chance to let your feet and toes taste the runway.

When you think about it, though, there's always a place for socks that still don't have socks. You can put on a puppet show! Who says socks belong only to your feet? If you're in need of something fun to do at home this May 8, try putting on your socks and creating your own live puppet show. It is a creative way to be fun, whether it's for your kids or for yourself. And don't worry about looking silly, we promise no reviews!

Or, you can go down the cleaning path and use it afterwards to clean and dust around the entire house! Socks are great for cleaning hard-to-reach places in your home like curtains, tops of cabinets, and fireplaces. Just slide one onto your hand and clean! And they're easy enough to clean on their own once the job is done—just toss them in the washing machine as you normally would.

Want to continue learning more? Well, keep reading, as we dive into the history of where No Sock Days originally came from.

History of No Socks Day

No Socks Day has a rather odd history when you get right to it. No Sock Day was created by Thomas Roy and his wife and is now included in the Chase Events Calendar. Thomas Roy is the actor most recently appeared in the film 12 Monkeys as a street preacher, and then again in 2009 The Answer Man, a dark comedy related to alcoholism and addiction.

Yet despite its quirky and rather dark past, as with many holidays like this, it's all about being basically fun. Their histories are all different and they all represent different ideas and explanations of what you can do on No Socks Day, but basically, having fun is often the main idea behind it! No Socks Day is just one of many holidays that have made it to the pages of August and is your chance to let your feet fly over the dirt, grass and rocks of the wilds.
