Winnie the Pooh Day 2017

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.

More about the Day

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.

Winnie the Pooh Day is referred to as a National Day. However, there is not any presidential proclamation for the day. Still, it is a holiday which people of all ages, especially the young mass, likes to celebrate. Winnie the Pooh had been a part of everyone while growing up. What can be a more appropriate occasion than this day to be one with the childhood buddy once again?

You can enjoy the day and help your kids have lots of fun on this day by making teddy bear crafts, reading Winnie the Pooh books and some works of A. A. Milne, watching Pooh movies, gifting a cuddly Winnie the Pooh toy to your kid, and make him/her dress up like Pooh.

Some of the crafts that you can try making on this day are using readymade dough or clay to make Pooh and his friends. Also you can try your hand at painting with your kids.
