Lost Sock Memorial Day commemorated in US
America is certainly the nation of bizarre holidays, and May 9th footwear-related day is most definitely no exception.

The Ocean Lakes Family Campground in South Carolina took part in the annual event which featured a clothesline and clothes pins for guests to pin their remaining single socks to in the hope of finding their pairs.

Promotional posters were also placed around the campground with headlines stating that they were either "missing" or "wanted" with descriptions of the various lonely socks.

Barb Krumm, director of marketing and public relations at the site, claimed that the team had been looking forward to the holiday for months.

She also added that "guests were giggling as teammates were creating the Lost Sock Memorial Wall", and really got to grips with their Pinterest boards with different sock-related themes.

The campsite is currently enjoying a year-long theme entitled Leap Into Fun, where a host of unofficial holidays and activity events are being held to mark the leap year.
