National Inventors Day
Date When Celebrated : Always February 11
On February 11, 1983, U.S. President Ronald Reagan declared this day to be National Inventors Day. The date was selected, as Thomas Alva Edison, the greatest inventor in U.S. history, was born on this day in 1847 in Milan,Ohio. While Edison was perhaps best known for inventing the light bulb, he held over 1,000 patents!
National Inventors Day honors Thomas Edison and all inventors, recognizing the enormous impact inventions have on technology industry, and society worldwide. Just think about all the inventions, and the resulting new products, processes and procedures that you hve seen in your lifetime. It readily gives us an appreciaton for the inventors, that allowed these things to come into being.
On National Inventors Day, spend a few minutes to appreciate inventors, whatever their field. If you are lucky enough to know one, let them know just how much you appreciate them.
