At DrapeStyle we celebrate all kinds of fabric, and we love all types of prints.
Plaidurday. Who knew it was a thing, right? Well it’s this week and why not celebrate and wear a little plaid? He’s a little info I found about this National Holiday: http://plaidurday.com/
THE WORLDWIDE CELEBRATION OF PLAID
Plaidurday is the worldwide celebration of plaid. It occurs annually on the first Friday of October. There are lots of ways to celebrate! With plaid we can all make a positive impact in the world.
A BRIEF HISTORY
It all began in Lansing, Michigan. In part, it was inspired by the heckling one young man received from his co-workers. These co-workers (who he secretly has great admiration for) noticed that he was wearing plaid quite frequently. At which point we ask, what else would he wear? Solid colors? Polka dots? Stripes that don’t intersect? Argyle? Sounds foolish.
On the morning of August 26, 2010, an epiphany was had. Plaidurday! The word came to this young man’s mind. From where, nobody knows. But perhaps there is a higher being who happens to love plaid just as much as he does.
This day would bring together all the wonderful plaid-wearing people of the world.
The inaugural celebration took place on October 7, 2011. And forevermore the first Friday of October will be dedicated to plaid.
