Zipper Day

How great are zippers? They go up. They go down. They allow for easy access...

Get your mind out of the gutter.

But how often do we celebrate them? Almost never, which is why someone decided to put a day aside just for zippers and their awesomeness, so Happy National Zipper Day! This day celebrates something that we often do not think about and just automatically take for granted.

Too much gratitude. 

National Zipper Day marks the day in 1913 when the zipper was patented in the United States thanks to a Swedish born electrical engineer, Gideon Sundback.
