May 9th: Lost Sock Memorial Day
Today is an important event in the global calendar, as across the planet people recognise Lost Sock Memorial Day.

Bloggers from across the world have picked up on this important event, with many posting information about socks they have lost and swapping rumours of where their legwear could have gone.

Cynthia Pearson of Point Breeze told local newspaper the Pittsburgh Live that she lives in hope that her missing socks will return.

"I was just thinking how pitiful it is that they're all alone, that they're all wallflowers in this missing mate sock drawer. They should join a singles club or something," she suggested.

The website Holiday Insights carries information on how to recognise memorial days and the traditions surrounding them.

It recommends that to commemorate Lost Sock Memorial Day, hopeful people collect their single socks and spent a few minutes searching for their mates.

Should they be unsuccessful, the resource recommends taking a few moments to remember the lost socks before binning their useless mates.
