February 8th is a day to pay respect to your old sewing needles by sticking them in tofu. The idea is that your needles have worked hard and have served you well, and so deserve a soft place to live our their final days.

Long past so we missed it but that's OK... I never remember to save my broken needles anyway!

Never heard of it. In my mind that is about all that tofu is good for, though. Wink
