National Short Girl Appreciation Day Today, December 21st

December 21 is National Short Girl Appreciation DayToday is not just the first day of winter, it's also National Short Girl Appreciation Day today, December 21st!   How fitting that we observe this day on the shortest day of the year! So if you're a girl whose height is under 5'5", today you celebrate being short! Being 5'3", myself, I am definitely a short girl--even though in my head I'm at least 5'7". 

 

What's the hardest thing about being a short girl? Anyone who is my height and small-boned understands the pain of shopping for clothes. It seems harder and harder to find petite sizes in the stores (apparently the average American woman today is 5'5" and wears a size 14). I'm always shortening jeans, trousers, arms of jackets/coats. When I find that illusive petite size 4 in my favorite jeans, I buy out the store and keep a supply in my closet as I never know when I might see my size on the store shelves again. One of my personal fears is wearing out my jeans and not being able to buy more in my size!

 

Clothes shopping frustrations, aside... there are some unique advantages of being a short girl:

 

  1. Most men are taller than you.

  2. We can wear heels without towering over men or looking like a giant.

  3. We have more legroom in airplanes.

  4. We can fall asleep on the couch without our legs hanging over the arm.

  5. There's some evidence that short people live longer.

  6. It's been said that short women tend to be more ambitious, independent, feisty, and achieve more financially (hmmm... who does that remind me of? Wait!  It's a perfect description of me!).

 

So if you're a short girl, celebrate being short all day today On National Short Girl Appreciation Day and never forget....

 

God made short girls perfect

Scott Godzyk ~ hi Scott... well now you know about Short Girl Appreciation Day! The way they are building planes these days, leg room is tight even for shorties like me! I can't imagine what you go through, especially on a long flight.

Bill Roberts ~ good morning, Bill. I'm with you in looking forward to longer days after today, especially as we had some 5 days of grey, grey skies here, which is very unusual for Charlotte. 

As for the marriages to women who were all 5'3"... at least you know what you like and are consistent! 

Here's wishing you and yours a very happy Christmas and New Year. Now, I'm off running to my last closing of the year.

Hi Nina - Thanks for the heads-up. I'm going to make sure that Mary - who always adds an inch to the real number, and still qualifies - has something to celebrate today.

Dick Greenberg ~ hi Dick... I totally get Mary's MO here. I added an inch to my height for decades! The funny thing is that I was talking about this with a client today who is 5'3" and she said to me she always felt like I was 5'7"! Yes!

Nina,  As a towering 5'7" .... these days ... I feel short.  In my younger days I was considered tall even though I am the runt of my family.  Two sisters are over 6 feet.

Hi Nina Hollander, this was a fun post and comments. I always wanted to be shorter, I'm 5'8" but would say 5'7", in my mind, I am. You are right about wearing heels.

Good morning Nina.  I see it is just another day here in the Rain.  Learned something new today.    Do you know if they have a tall women's day?

James Dray ~ good morning to you, James. I have no idea about tall women's day... being a short "girl," I was focused on myself and all my short friends!

Kathleen Daniels ~ hi Kathleen...it is all relative isn't it (and no pun intended)? Since I have femal cousings who are 5'8" and 6 feet, I'm the runt. As one of my cousins pointed out once, when we were little girls I was the oldest and the tallest... now the youngest is still the youngest and the tallest.

Happy Belated National Short Girl Appreciation Day, Nina ---- I would like the idea of being able to stretch out without my legs dangling over the edge of the couch.   It's easy to see why membership in such a club has some distinct advantages.
