National Crayon Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 31
Today is a colorful day, one truly worth celebrating. Today is National Crayon Day. It is a day to celebrate the creation of crayons and the joy of coloring.
The origin of crayons dates back to the17th century. In those days, the original crayons were not made of wax. The colors in those early days, were more limited, and not as long lasting or durable. Wax crayons arrived at the beginning of the 1900's.
In 1902, the Crayola brand arrived on the scene and the world of crayons has never been the same since. Between 1902 and today, Crayola has come out with 120 colors. This day can be a little bittersweet, as Crayola has retired 50 colors, most often on this very day.
