Lost Sock Memorial Day

Lost Sock Memorial Day - a day for those lost socks that go MIA from the washer and/or dryer.

Held annually on May 9th.

MIA means missing in action.

I’m unsure of how or when this holiday started.

That single sock who lost its mate, can now memorialize their mate with this holiday.

I remember Tupperware having an item that was supposed to help keep the sock mates together in the wash, They would be in the bucket of gadgets at parties. They looked similar to this image below.
