On the first Friday of October, an interesting holiday awaits us – Plaidurday! It is dedicated not only to this beautiful thing, but also to everyone who treats it with warmth and tenderness. The plaid had a significant impact on history, but did not go away with the past, remaining close to the person and warming him on rainy gloomy days. And for that we say thank you!
Scientists believe that the plaid originated in the 6th-8th centuries BC. or a little earlier. Evidence was found in the territories of China, Austria, China, Scandinavia. The 16th century brought it real popularity – it was used in art and cultural fashion. At the beginning of 1800, the plaid had a special concept: it was associated with the Scottish royal family.
The holiday arose rather unusually. Man Bugsy Sailor went to work in a blanket, thereby annoying his colleagues. The team laughed at the man, and then used their fists – the beaten Bugsy came up with the idea to create a date dedicated to wearing a plaid. Moreover, he was not even angry at his offenders, but rather thanked for the idea. In 2010, the holiday was formed, and a year later it was celebrated at the official level. It brings together all the people of the world who love the plaid as well as Sailor.
