November 16th Button Day

The world of buttons are amazing. To think where those buttons came from what they might have been through. They are generally as different as the people that wear them and some have meaning, some don’t. The military units of the world have always taken pride in the buttons their uniforms have been made of, the idea of keeping them polished and bright is important as a sign that you take pride in yourself, your country and your service. Collecting buttons is a great, and generally pretty cheap, hobby. The odd thing about buttons is, even if you collect them… you can never find the button like the one you need if you lose a button one.

How to celebrate – Start a button collection. Save any button you find and keep if safe. Get a supply of buttons to keep on hand.
