CELLOPHANE TAPE DAY

Sunday, May 27th: Who knew? Who knew that today is CELLOPHANE TAPE DAY? There are more holidays out there to celebrate than I ever knew was possible. Think of all the ways we use a roll of tape around the house. We wrap presents (infinitely better than tying the packages with string, as they used to). We tape ripped pages in books. We tape notes on the door. We tape envelopes that lost their “sticky”. We tape up envelopes to re-use, in a frugal, green way. We tape things together. We repair, we mend. We remove lint, dirt and fibers. It’s even good for those immediate, temporary mending/patching jobs.

Tape has been an integral part of our lives for so long, that most of us don’t remember the days B.T. (before tape). We’ve grown up with it. It’s one of those items we don’t even think about. Until we need it and we’re out of it. Or, we can’t find the rolls we have.

Today is the anniversary date of the patent of Scotch Tape, May 27, 1930. Scotch tape is the patented creation of the 3M Company (Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company).

Celebrate life, celebrate and appreciate the small things that make our lives easier. Happy birthday Scotch tape!
