Stickers are often used to celebrate children's achievements or decorate for other celebrations, but they are rarely celebrated themselves. This is the day just for them! There are so many amazing uses for stickers. You can use them to easily add an extra pop to planners, notebooks, cards, and even walls. Buy some stickers to decorate your life and stick them everywhere to celebrate!
Stickers are a wonderful way to share our interests with others. Whether you’re an artist spreading your work, or someone who feels an attachment to the sticker, they’re a perfect medium of self expression.
This holiday is on January 13th to celebrate the birth of Ray Stanton, the first to make stickers commercially available in the United States. Most people think of stickers for their fun uses and less of their practical uses. Do you realize how much of our lives involve stickers?

In the last couple decades, it’s been popular to receive a sticker from a business or location you’ve visited as a momento for visiting that place. And as seen in the tweet above, a lot of us struggle to figure out where to put them - so they end up not being stuck on anything. If you’re like this, celebrate national sticker day by going through that drawer and actually placing your stickers!
Ideas of where to place them:
Reusable water bottle
Piece of furniture
Coffee table, side table, mirror, etc.
Makeup case/travel kit
Reusable to-go cup
Phone or phone case
