Button Day

Friday, November 16, 2012

emoticon Button Day emoticon

When : Always November 16th

Button Day is a fun day to collect, use, and just enjoy buttons. Button come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors and designs. There is an amazingly endless variety of buttons for your collection.

But, wait a minute.... is that the meaning of this day!? Maybe, the purpose of this day is to wear buttons. You know, those diverse buttons that send a message for political purposes. Or, ones that have funny sayings. Or, a button with a smiley face to cheer everyone up.

The origins of this day are unknown. So, we can't be certain to the real meaning of this day.

And, that could be a good thing. It means you can celebrate today in anyway you want. Here are our suggestions. I suspect you may have more.....

Button Collecting and Display Day - collect and display clothing buttons
Button Up Day- 'cuz it's cold outside!
Pushing Your Buttons Day - you're kidding me, aren't you!?
Belly Button Day - now, here's one that could be real fun
Belly Button Fuzz Day - it's amazing what you find in there.
Wear Buttons Day - skip the political buttons. My favorite is a Smiley button.
However you choose to celebrate, have a Happy Button Day!

Origin of Button Day:
We did not find any information about the origin of this special day, when it began or who originated it.

Apparently, the originator's lips were buttoned up.

    I used to have a sizeable collection but had to get rid of most of them when I moved about 6 years ago......There was some real beauties (and not so beautyful) one in that box, lol...

    Can't even count all the buttons I have. I sew and craft and just yesterday looked up bottons for my daughter to use in a craft. Glad you didn't stay buttoned up about button day!
