NATIONAL WOMEN IN BLUE JEANS DAY!
Sure, today is also Magnetic South Pole Day, the day in 1909 that Shackleton and his doomed band of shivering researchers reached that invisible pivot point in the ice, and International Humanitarian Day too, both of which pale to insignificance compared to Women In Blue Jeans.
We can celebrate scientific discoveries and acts of human kindness any old time, but there’s only one Women in Blue Jeans Day, and we need to accord it the reverence it deserves.
We’re talking all kinds of lady jeans here, even if they are not blue: hiphuggers, cutoffs, overalls, bellbottoms or straight legs, all of which seem designed to show off the female figure in all its glory.
Never mind that dungarees were originally designed as rugged denim work pants by Jacob David and Levi Strauss in 1873, that’s mere history, something else we can appreciate on any number of the other 364 days this year. Today is for woman watching, and that little skip of your heart and involuntary intake of breath that accompanies the sublime sight of a fine-looking woman in her blue jeans best.
