Winnie the who? Winnie the Pooh!

Today is  Winnie the Pooh Day! On 18th January 1882, the creator of Winnie the Pooh was born.

A A Milne has created many children’s characters and is the author of many books. Now, every year people celebrate Pooh Bear on the day of the author’s birth.

Milne graduated from Cambridge in 1903.  Between graduating and writing his first Winnie the Pooh book, he published 18 plays and 3 novels.  His most famous creation sprung to life on the page along with Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger and don’t forget Christopher Robbin! This beloved collection of stories, first published in 1926, was inspired by the teddy bear of author A A Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, who himself became one of the stories’ characters.

With his caring nature, the oh-so-loveable old bear appeals to all ages. Who could resist a bear that utters the words “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.” It just makes you melt inside!

So today on 18th January make sure you celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day with your children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren!

Why not dust off your Winnie the Pooh books and make a visit to the House at Pooh Corner – you could also take a walk through your own local “Hundred Acre Wood” to find “The Enchanted Place” or why not have a game of poohsticks, just like the characters in the book! Whatever you do, celebrating on 18th January is the perfect way to get in the classic Winnie mood!

If you have time, on this snowy blustery day, there is a full length video to watch to help reminisce!  Click on the Play icon above …

Were you a Winnie the Pooh fan, and has his appeal passed through your family generations?
