November 16th Button Day

Buttons can be really annoying if they are too small to fit the hole they are intended to go in, also if they fall off and get lost… never to be found again. But buttons can also be really cool. Button collections are always interesting, or at least most of the time, and some are actually pretty valuable. Buttons from the past are usually ornate and have some meaning to them, particularly if they come off of a uniform or some governmental outfit.

How to celebrate – Start a button collection. Learn how to tell a possible valuable button from an ordinary button. Find a special place to store all those buttons you find but have no idea where they came from.
