It's National Wear Your Apron Day
It's a little known fact that in the United States, the first Monday after mother's day is National Wear Your Apron Day. I have fond memories of wearing aprons when I was a child, both at school and at home. I had many styles similar to the one worn by the little girl in the picture above and some with long sleeves. Some were longer and looked more like a pretty dress.
Aprons are making a comeback. Some are even falling in love with vintage aprons all over again.
Do you like aprons? Do you wear aprons?
I have several, but my favorites are a man's blue check I had given my dad for when he barbecued and a pink one with "I love my mommy" which my newborn son gave to me when he took his paternal Gran Dee by the hand and went shopping for my very first mother's day gift. There's also a gold lame for Christmas or special occasions with matching oven mitts, also given to me by my mother-in-law.
The more I wear my aprons, the more I like them and it makes me wonder why they ever went out of style.
I'm curious to know what you think about aprons and whether you wear them. ;-) Does it work for you? Leave me a comment and/or vote with my informal poll. It's at the top of the page just below the Erma Bombeck quote.
