Blue Jeans Day!

Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of December was picked to celebrate this holiday and why the 5th day?? That's the question, but unfortunately...

our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!


What are blue jeans?
"Jeans are pants, or trousers, made from denim. Mainly designed for work, they became popular among teenagers starting in the 1950s. Historic brands include Levi's and Wrangler." "Today, jeans are a very popular form of casual dress around the world and come in many styles and colors, with the "blue jeans" particularly identified with the American culture, especially the American Old West." "Americans spent more than $14 billion on jeans in 2004."

Jeans in popular culture
"Initially, blue jeans were simply sturdy trousers worn by workers, especially in the factories during World War II." "During this period, men's jeans had the zipper down the front, whereas women's jeans had the zipper down the right side. By the 1960s, both men's and women's jeans had the zipper down the front. "In the United States during the 1950s, wearing of blue jeans by teenagers and young adults became symbolic of mild protest against conformity." "This was considered by some older adults as disruptive; for example, some movie theaters and restaurants refused to admit patrons who wore blue jeans." "During the 1960s the wearing of blue jeans became more acceptable and by the 1970s had become general fashion in the United States, at least for informal wear." "Notably, in the mid-1950s the denim and textiles industry was revolutionized by the introduction of the stone-washing technique by GWG (Great Western Garment Co.)."  "Acceptance of jeans continued through the 1980s and 1990s to the point where jeans are now a wardrobe staple, with the average North American owning seven pairs!"

"Jeans come in many styles and fits
based on the manufacturer; some of the more popular brands include Lee's, Levis, Urban Pipeline, Unionbay, NoBoundaries, and Wranglers." "The styles popular of teenagers include yellow and white fades to look as if they have been worn down and been worked in. Some brands even sell vintage looks where the legs are pre-scrathed and torn before use."

"Rises in jeans (the distance from the crotch to the waistband) range from high-waisted to superlow-rise (Low rise can be called Low Riders). Jeans for men usually have a longer rise and zipper, whereas women have a shorter rise and zipper, although exceptions do exist and this is largely a function of current trends. In decades past, when high-waisted jeans were popular, it was often the women's that featured a longer rise."

Fits of jeans are determined by current styles, sex, and by the manufacturer. Here are some of the fits produced for jeans:

Ankle jeans, Baggy jeans,  Bell-bottoms/Flares/Bootcut,  Boy cut,
Carpenter jeans,  Hip-huggers/Low-rise jeans,  Capris,  Levi's,  Overalls,
Phat pants,  Relaxed Fit/Loose,  Sagging,  Skinny jeans,  Straight jeans
Jorts (Jean shorts),  Boot cut,
