Measure your Feet Day! An unusual day out of all the ‘national days’ indeed. The story behind this day originates in ancient Iceland. Ancient Icelanders spent most of their free time either bowling or “shelbing.” Shelbing is high-fiving with your feet! When spring rolled around, a time known for extreme rainstorms in Iceland, the natives would run into their huts, and celebrate the rain by measuring their feet and then pairing off. Shelbing was a customary way to celebrate the rainstorms. Soon enough world leaders caught wind of this customary tradition and found a way to commemorate it. Henceforth, the birth of “Measure your feet day” on January 23rd.
