#Earrings365 - day 6 - Winnie the Pooh Day

Today, Wed 18th January we are celebrating another weird holiday, it's Winnie the Pooh Day! On this day we celebrate the birthday of author A. A. Milne in 1882. The initials stand for Allan Alexander. He was an author of children's story books, and created Winnie the Pooh and his friends.

It’s one special anniversary fans just can’t bear to miss! Every year, the occasion is marked with events such as teddy bears’ picnics, featuring plenty of honey on the menu.

Winnie the Pooh first appeared on the printed page in 1926, together with friends Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore. All of them were based on toys owned by the author’s son, who also featured in the famous stories as Christopher Robin. The character later starred in a series of much-loved Disney films. One extra-special way to mark the day is to visit Pooh Corner in Hartfield, East Sussex, where the books were written. You can pick up a map to follow in the characters’ footsteps, and even play a game of Poohsticks on the original bridge.

My favorite character is Eeyore. He is generally characterized as a pessimistic, gloomy, depressed, anhedonic, old grey stuffed donkey who is a friend of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Here is my pair of earrings for the 6th day of my #Earrings365 challenge!

For this pair of earrings I chose for blue faceted roundel glass beads.

This is my inspiration photo for today.
