International Safety Pin Day

Yes, today is International Safety Pin Day!* The humble safety pin was invented by Walter Hunt in 1849. He owed a friend some money and invented the safety pin to raise the funds to repays him. His invention is one of the worlds most enduring. I cannot think of anything more efficient at holding together a broken zipper on a pair of denims. I had this unfortunate event happen to me while out for the day with a girlfriend. It could have been worse. I could have been going “commando”. Other days to remember* Today is also Golfers Day, Be Kind To Lawers Day (as if), Sibling Day, Equal Pay Day, Library Workers Day, and is part of Gardening Month plus others.   Sell Your Art *Source Days Of The Year
