Friday 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day. This day was designated because Down syndrome occurs when there are 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, so 3/21.

Since the chromosomes look like socks when viewed on a karyotype, someone came up with the idea last year to have everyone "rock their socks" by wearing crazy, colorful, zany socks on 3/21 in support of DS awareness.

This Friday, 3/21, rock your socks in support of Down syndrome awareness!
