Dec. 6, 1996, marked the first annual National Pawnbrokers Appreciation Day. The celebration was created by Nancy Michaels of Impression Impact in Concord, Mass., and listed in Chase's Calendar of Events as a holiday "designed to celebrate and acknowledge the valuable lending and retail services provided by pawnbrokers throughout the country." The chosen date of Dec. 6 was no accident - it's also St. Nicholas' Day, the patron saint of pawn broking.
