In this age of extreme political polarity, can we all agree that Polka Dots have been the “UNSUNG HERO” for W–A–Y too long??
Thankfully, today we are able (and perhaps duty-bound) to provide the proper recognition that Polka Dots have long deserved — because Jan 22 is National Polka Dots Day!

It’s interesting to note that about the same time Polka Dots were introduced to the design world (approx 1850), the Polka Dance was sweeping the dance world. As a result, it is fitting and proper and perhaps even a little patriotic, that on National Polka Dots Day, we kick up our heels to a couple of Polka tunes . . .
