Friday October 21, 2016 is Count Your Buttons Day.

“They’re a common part of any modern day garment, buttons. They’re found on our shirts, our jackets, our pants and pockets, button-fly jeans are a popular alternative to zipper pants. Buttons get in everywhere, and come in every imaginable shape and size, and counting your buttons can be both practical and fun.

Just think how much more difficult your life would be if the button was never invented. What would you use to fasten your shirt closed? This day is a great opportunity to make sure all your garments are in order.

Buttons have been around nearly as long as we’ve had clothing, being used for decoration and securing different pieces of clothing. There is a beautiful history of buttons all throughout the world, from the earliest buttons as seashells straight through to the gorgeous Czech glass buttons with their ornate designs.

The first and foremost method of celebrating this day is to do just that! Count your buttons! This is basically a way of ensuring that all your garments have all their fasteners, and that everything is in order.

Buttons have a fascinating history, and there’s also a great hobby to be found in counting your buttons. There are button enthusiasts all over the world who have a frankly immense collection of buttons from every era and manufacturer. Bone Buttons, plastic buttons, bronze, and glass, even metal and wood, the types of buttons you can collect are limitless!

If you’re a true button enthusiast, you could even organize a get together of those in your area to celebrate the wonders that are buttons. Button enthusiasts love to get together and examine each others collections, as well as trading those they have duplicates of to get a rare or never before seen piece.

Get out there and explore the great big world of buttons on Count Your Buttons Day.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/oc2SK
