March 21, marks the World's Down Syndrome Day, celebrating the lives of people and children with down syndrome. It is a day to raise awareness on the condition and the millions of people living with it.
The day is celebrated March 21 because the date symbolizes the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, the genetic anomaly which leads to Down syndrome. Typically, the nucleus of each cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, but an extra copy occurs in people with Down syndrome, altering the course of development.
To honor this day, people intentionally mismatched their socks and / or wear crazy, wacky socks.
We are big here on mismatching our socks. We do it when we can't find our socks but we also do it for fun or to recognize that being different is alright! We also intentionally launched our company 2 years ago on the very same day - World's Down Syndrome Day.
Here are some wacky sock ideas for you in little and grown up sizes.
