National Tie One On Day


I found out about this special apron holiday from the Apronista Queen, Ellyn Anne at this website and thought I would pass it on. I may actually do this, I love this concept and I know it would make Thanksgiving Day that much more meaningful. I like that she says that apron is "the universal symbol of home, family and mothering..." what a tender thought for all of us hard working mommas!
National Tie One On Day™ - November 26,2008

National Tie One On Day™ celebrates the humble apron and the spirit of women of earlier generations who donned the universal symbol of home, family and mothering as the uniform of their daily wardrobe and helped make America the great country it is today. On the day before Thanksgiving, EllynAnne encourages us to pause in the preparation of our own meal, wrap a loaf of bread in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on...an apron, of course!, and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone in need of spiritual or physical sustenance. According to EllynAnne, no matter which way you turn out of your own front door, someone who is deserving of a hug is very close by. “Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal,” says EllynAnne, “and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”
