National Skirt Day

National Skirt Day is a holiday observed annually on March 10th, celebrating an article of clothing that has technically been around since prehistoric times and has become the quintessential feminine attire over the years.

Skirts have been worn to provide full coverage, to allow women to work in any season, and to offer elegance and grace simultaneously. They have been popular in the past and have once again become popular, so perhaps this is the perfect time for people to observe this holiday. How is this holiday observed? Well, let’s take a closer look at this day and find out.

The History of National Skirt Day

In the past, skirts were an article of clothing worn by both men and women. Scientists have found straw skirts that date back to almost 6,000 years ago, and there is a ton of Egyptian art that shows skirts being worn by both sexes.

Over time, skirts would eventually be designated as an article of clothing for women, and it has remained that way pretty much ever since. At this moment, we don’t know exactly who invented National Skirt Day or why they invented it.

All that we know is that this holiday dates back to the late 1990s. It has been observed ever since then, and we imagine it will continue to be a holiday that will be observed from here on out.
