National No Socks Day

Most of the time, wearing socks is the most sanitary thing you can do as it keeps bacteria from spreading from the bottom of your feet. In addition to that, it keeps your feet warm, particularly in the colder months. However, there is a time when you want to take your socks off, and it is not a bad idea to let your feet air out. You can do that on National No Socks Day.

May 8th is the day to take your socks off on National No Socks Day. Even though socks provide you with some protection, keep your feet warm, and keep the bacteria from spreading on the bottom of your feet, sometimes you need just to take them off. What do you do when your feet are too warm? You do not want to keep your socks on, and the fact of the matter is, airing your feet is one of the best things you can do to keep your feet fresh. Therefore, you cannot keep socks on all of the time.

Not to mention, if you go to the beach or go swimming, you have to keep your socks off. The feeling of the sand going on your bare feet can be a nice feeling on your feet and then going into the water to wash the sand off, which also feels so refreshing. You want to have a day where you can allow your feet to fly free, and on that day, you can use your socks not to put on your feet but to create a fun puppet show. That is something you can do at home if you would like to celebrate the day!

The History Of National No Socks Day

The history of National No Socks Day is odd, and Thomas Roy and his wife established it. If you remember that movie 12 Monkeys, then that starred Thomas Roy. He played a street preacher and was in The Answer Man in 2009, a dark comedy about rehab and alcoholism. It is not known for a reason behind their motivation to establish the day. However, Roy and his wife found the day for their own reasons to help reduce your laundry load by not wearing socks for one day and to allow your feet to fly free, and to allow your feet to air out and get in touch with nature.

How To Celebrate National No Socks Day

Why not go to your backyard wearing no socks and run in it with your bare feet so you can get in touch with nature. If you are using socks, then wear them on your hand as a hand puppet and why not create a fun play about the day. Be sure to use #NationalNoSocksDay in the post.
