Old Maid's Day

Date When Celebrated: Always on  June 4 th

Still haven't found "Mr. Right"? Are the years are beginning to pile up? Don't worry or fret. This day is for you. Old Maid's Day brings awareness to those of us who have not yet found (and caught) our soul mates.

Old Maid's Day exists to put into the spotlight all of the fair maidens who have yet to find their Prince Charming.

Ladies, celebrate Old Maids Day by getting out and getting noticed. Guys, open your eyes.... "Mrs. Right" may be right under your nose.


Origin of Old Maid Day:

The year was 1946 (or thereabouts). WWII was over, and millions of soldiers were returning home. There was a huge increase in marriages. Somewhere during this time, it was noted that there were plenty of Maidens waiting for the returning GIs. The ladies were not getting younger, as they awaited the return of their GI.  

The long war had disrupted, and put on hold, many relationships. And, many GIs did not return home. Dances and socials were held to bring together returning soldiers and the many available, unmarried ladies. It is from this occurrence, that Old Maid's Day emerged.
