St. Distaff’s Day 2018

January 7 is Distaff Day, also called Roc Day, the day after the feast of the Epiphany. This day marks the end of the twelve days of Christmas when women resumed their household work and went back to spinning.

I have read that the term St. Distaff’s Day is unofficial as there is no such saint. I think it just sounds better.

The St. Distaff’s Day event here in Washington will be held at the Evergreen State Fair on January 6. I have never attended, though I am seriously thinking I should change that this year.

If you are in the area and/or plan on attending, let me know through IG, I would love to meet you.
