Winnie the Pooh Day

Winnie the Pooh Day takes place on January 18th to celebrate the birth of A. A. Milne in 1882. Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear that he often saw at London Zoo, and “Pooh,” a swan they had met while on holiday.

In the Milne books, Pooh is naive and slow-witted, but he is also friendly, thoughtful, and steadfast. Although he and his friends agree that he “has no Brain,” Pooh is occasionally acknowledged to have a clever idea, usually driven by common sense. Pooh is also a talented poet, and his stories are frequently punctuated by his poems and “hums.” Pooh is very fond of food, especially “hunny” but also condensed milk and other items.
