The day of the lost sock on May 9, 2023
There are things that it is better not to get to the bottom of. What could be discovered there would be too terrible and strange.

Sure, there are several theories, of which the sock monster seems the most scientifically plausible.

Always think of the poor victims
Of course, this is not without consequences for the single sock left behind. It is precisely this uncertainty combined with the feeling of being useless that is particularly bad for them. It is a great consolation that there is the day of the lost sock, the international Lost Socks Memorial Day. Likewise, it is a day of remembrance, a day of action, a day of honor and a public holiday all rolled into one. Most importantly, it forces us all to think at least once a year about what we do to socks when we wash them in the washing machine.
Who Invented Lost Sock Day?
Against this background, the two Brits Cozy Sox and Fanny Day deserve great credit for inventing or bringing the day of the lost sock into being. Both women are affected themselves. Although nothing more precise is known about their fate, one can assume that their experiences must have been traumatic. However, Cozy Sox and Fanny Day didn't want to let that get them down. On the contrary: Your Lost Socks Memorial Day is also a declaration of war against the terrible loss of socks, which makes many a laundry basket empty. Right from the start, they were very realistic in their assumptions and goals. They didn't assume that the mystery would ever be fully solved, nor that the missing socks would come back.

How people can help the bereaved single sock
Lost Sock Day has raised awareness of the suffering and problems of socks for many people. While they can no longer do anything for the socks that simply disappeared during the wash, they take care of the socks left behind all the more lovingly. The whole drama only becomes apparent when you put yourself in these socks. Not only have you been brutally robbed of your partner, your existence suddenly seems completely useless. It goes without saying that this has a negative effect on the sock psyche.
A new meaning of life for lonely single socks
It is therefore important to give the existence of the lonely socks a meaning again. This can be done, for example, by combining them with a new partner after a while. Other single socks that share the same fate are ideally suited for this. This is how new, intensive partnerships are created, which can also set fashionable accents. Different sock combinations are undoubtedly a clear statement - and a commitment to the day of the lost sock.
