On June 19, 2020 is their special day: We celebrate the flip flops!
Each year, the third Friday in June is “National Flip Flop Day”. In Florida we can of course celebrate this day unlimited, because it is certainly warm enough in June.
Surely you are like me and have a nice selection in your closet – comfortable and worn in ones for everyday life or fancy ones from brand designers to go out. The light shoes are automatically associated with summer, sun and beach.
Did you know that the term “flip flop” dates back to the early 60s? It describes the flip-flopping sound as we walk, slapping the back of our feet. Thong sandals have been around for more than 3000 years and were already worn in ancient Egypt.
The world’s most famous brand of flip-flops is Havaianas.
