They do in Japan - it's called Hari-Kuyo or the Festival of Broken Needles which occurs every year on February 8: http://plays-with-needles.blogspot.com/2012/01/hari-kuyo-my-book-of-needles-and-next.html

I broke at least three machine needles this year but didn't save the pieces. Ooops! Otherwise... there's this bent neelde in my needlecase... I wonder if I have any tofu in the house? LOL

I don't save them either. I just throw them out as I go along. Don't need any needles or pins for Abby to have a chance to swollow.
