National Static Electricity Day

January 9th marks the celebration of National Static Electricity Day. Static Electricity refers to the imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. This charge persists until it dissipates through electrical discharge or the flow of electric current. The term "Static Electricity" is used in contrast to current electricity, which transmits energy through conductors like wires. We've all encountered Static Electricity—whether it's the jolt from a door handle on a cold, dry day or the awe of natural lightning. Walking across a carpet in wool socks or cuddling with a friend's purr box kitten can also bring about this electrifying experience. The simple truth is that Static Electricity has the potential to add a little spark to your day.
