There’s something important I’d like to tell you about:
Twist Tie Appreciation Day
February 18th is Twist Tie Appreciation Day, where people all over the world give this appreciation for that wonderful invention, the twist tie. Twist ties hold your bags together, hold miscellaneous wires and keep plastic action figures from falling out of their boxes.
What would the world be without twist ties? A sadder world, that’s what. Twist ties remind us to hold ourselves together and firmly grasp what’s important in our lives. They teach us how closing the bag of our hearts sometimes means we have twist ourselves around and if we aren’t careful, our sharp edges can prick unsuspecting fingers.
So, this coming Twist Tie Appreciation Day, gather all your twist ties and have a Twistfestival. Twist them into bracelets and figurines of past German singers. Use them as extremely flexible toothpicks for cheese squares. Bake a giant twist tie cake for everyone to eat after the twist tie scavenger hunt. Above all, be creative and have fun. Twist ties deserve it.
