November 11 is Corduroy Day! Each year on 11|11, which is the date that most resembles the fabric, Corduroy is honored by the Corduroy Appreciation Club, who meet in New York City.
Attendees must wear at least 2 items of Corduroy to the event, where the president gives the State of Corduroy address, awards are given for various Corduroy-ness and food & drink are served which resembles the extolled fabric. The Club also meets every year on January 11, or 1|11, the other date which looks like the organization’s beloved fabric.
Can you imagine what they will do in 2011 (11|11|11) ?!
