Distaff Day, which is also called Roc Day, is celebrated on 7 January every year, after the feast of the Epiphany. This day is also known as Saint Distaff’s Day. This is one of the many unofficial holidays in Catholic nations. Many gatherings are held on this day. The distaff or the rock used in spinning was the symbol of women’s work. Women used to resume their household work after the Christmas holidays. Women used to spin the wheel in the evenings.
Men celebrate this day in their own way. They go back to their plowing work after the Christmas holidays. Men and women play pranks on each other during this celebration. It has no connection with any saint. Spinning was the only means of turning the raw wool, cotton or flax into a thread which is then used to weave into cloth.
