When is this holiday celebrated?
This holiday is observed & celebrated on November 27 every year.

Origin of this Holiday
At first glance you would think that this holiday has something to do with sewing wouldn't you?  Well through our research of this holiday, we found out it had nothing at all to do with sewing pins and needles at all, but was a holiday founded in 1937  to commemorate the opening of a play named Pins and Needles by a man named Harold Rome.

-Researching this holiday, it was a pro-labor play with the cast and crew from the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. (so that's where the pins and needles most likely came into play) The play played on weekends only so the women could keep their day jobs. Our research shows that the play ran for more than 1000 performances.

The Meaning of this holiday changed over time
Time passed and the play closed, but November 27 is still Pins and Needles Day. The meaning of the day changed with the passing of the play. Now it is referred to as a day of anticipation.

"Pins and Needles" is a saying that refers to Anticipation.

The meaning of Anticipation
Anticipation or being enthusiastic, is an emotion involving pleasure (and sometimes anxiety) in considering some expected or longed-for good event, or irritation at having to wait.  A name for pleasured anticipation is excitement.  Anticipation can be shown in many ways; for example, some people seem to smile uncontrollably during this period.

Pins & Needles final thought
Our research shows that the most popular things that people are anxious about at this time of year is the excitement of the Christmas season.
This is the time of the year that children are on "pins and needles" waiting for Christmas. Just thinking about Santa Clause coming and bringing gifts is exciting in itself. Even adults get excited about new gifts their going to receive. And last but not least, we all get excited when we think about all the holiday food that is enjoyed during the holiday season.

When it comes to getting all the holiday shopping done on time, plays a roll in this holiday as well.  Being on pins and needles can be shown in many ways. The definition of "Anticipation" can also be a bit on the negative side as well as the positive side. for example, some people seem ill or sick when feeling they are pushed for time. It is not uncommon for the brain to be so focused on an event, that the body is affected and they get that pins and needles feeling.
