Winnie the Pooh day
Did you know that 18th of January is the official Winnie the Pooh Day?
A.A. Milne, the author of this classic story, was born on this day back in 1882. It’s hard to imagine that this well-loved little bear was first published on 14 October 1926. The story started around the author’s son’s collection of stuffed toys. And yes, his son was called Christopher Robin in real life.
Did you catch last year’s film Goodbye Christopher Robin? It’s a dramatization of how the characters came to be created and well worth a watch.
Idea’s to celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day
Read a book.
Yeah, that one’s obvious but Pooh always has some words of wisdom even though he professes to be a ‘bear of very little brain.’
Watch a film.
There have been loads of animations of Winnie the Pooh stories. Here’s the trailer for the 2010 film.
