Origin of Old Maid Day:
The year was 1946 (or thereabouts). WWII was over, and millions of soldiers were returning home. There was a huge increase in marriages. Somewhere during this time, it was noted that there were plenty of Maidens waiting for the returning GIs. The ladies were not getting younger, as they awaited the return of their GI.
The long war had disrupted, and put on hold, many relationships. And, many GIs did not return home. Dances and socials were held to bring together returning soldiers and the many available, unmarried ladies. It is from this occurrence, that Old Maid’s Day emerged.
