Winnie the Pooh Day

On this day in 1882, A.A. Milne was born in London, England. We celebrate his birthday by honoring his most beloved fictional character, the bear called Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh and other animal characters such as Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, and Roo were friends with a little boy named Christopher Robin. They had many adventures involving blustery days and honey bees and such. The inspirations for these characters were A.A. Milne's real son, Christopher Robin, and his toys.

  • Celebrate by reading one of the Winnie the Pooh books, or by watching the excellent Disney video versions of the same.
  • Here is a Winnie the Pooh website, which has information and games and fun-fun-fun-fun-fun (as Tigger would say). And this website has recipes as well. (I wonder if some of them feature honey?)
  • Here are some Winnie the Pooh coloring pages to print.
  • Here is a delightful trailer for the Disney Pooh movie that will come out this summer. (Yeah!)
