Winnie the Pooh Day is celebrated on 18th January every year to enjoy the day with your most favorite bear and his friends. It is the birthday of the famous author Alan Alexander Milne (A.A .Milne) who was born on 18th January in 1882. He was a popular author of many children’s story books, but his most famous and loveable creation of Winnie the Pooh and his pals, Christopher Robin, motherly Kanga, bouncing Tigger, gloomy Eeyore, nervous Piglet, little Roo, bossy Rabbit and ol' smarty the Owl.
It is a sad thing that though there are enough evidences to support why the day was created, no records could specifically tell from when the celebration came into practice and was initiated by whom.
Milne created Winnie the Pooh and his pals with inspiration from the stuffed toys Christopher Robin Milne, Milne’s son had as a child. An interesting fact is, Christopher Robin is a character in the Winnie Pooh stories by Milne.
