International Mitten Tree Day is celebrated on December 6th each year, all around the world. This is a great day for people to celebrate the gift of warmth – in your office, your school, your home, or in your community! International Mitten Tree Day is sometimes used to organize donation campaigns to help those in need.

While the origins of this holiday are unknown, it is believed that it is a response to the book “The Mitten Tree,” by Candace Christiansen. In this story, a grandma knits mittens for children and hangs them on an evergreen tree near a bus stop so that those children waiting for the bus who don’t have mittens can use them to play in the snow. Every time the lady runs out of yarn, a basket with more yarn appears at her door, and she is able to continue to knit mittens for the children.
