Count Your Buttons

Parental wisdom has taught us to "count our blessings" when we are feeling melancholy, but we'll save that for another day. Today is… Count Your Buttons Day!? Yes, as found on Holiday Insights, we were perplexed by this wacky holiday too. So we wanted to know "Why!?" And it turns out that they don't know why either! The subject is rather ambiguous. Are these the buttons that keep our pants, shirts, sweaters and jackets together, or funny slogan buttons like the type we find around election season?

Some buttons aren't worth counting...

So how do you celebrate this day? Whether you are a "collector of buttons" or any other obscure obsession (hey, my grandmother collected spoons!), it's suggested that if you have nothing better to do, you start counting your buttons. Otherwise, you may choose to move on to the other other holiday celebrated today… National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day!
