Button Day is a fun day to collect, use, wear or just enjoy buttons. Button come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and designs. There is an amazingly endless variety of buttons for your collection.

The origins of this day are unknown. So, we can't be certain of the real meaning of this day. However, households have long followed the practice of snipping buttons from clothing headed for the ragbag. Do you remember playing with your mother’s or grandmother’s or great-grandmother’s button box or jar or tin?

The impulse to collect is a basic part of the human psyche, and buttons have been admired and collected for centuries. Button collecting was recognized as an organized hobby through the founding of the National Button Society in 1938.

You can celebrate today in any way you want! By the way – it was the very first word I ever said… and I’ve loved buttons all my life – so this is a perfect day for me!!!

If you want to know what I am celebrating tomorrow feel free to return to this page after 10 pm (GMT - UK) when I will post a link to preview tomorrow's celebration puzzle.

Thank you Mandy for this wonderful puzzle. Oh, I too played with buttons as a child - and even today some os us "trade" buttons to sew on clothing and cushions for decoration....
And Mandy - your first word was "button" - marvelous. Wish we could meet and compare collections...

I inherited some boxes with buttons from my mother. When I was a child I used to play with them, when my daughter was small she loved to play with them, and now, when my granddaughter comes here she can play with them!! Many of them are about 100 years old!! Funny to think about!! Thanks so very much Mandy!!
