World and International Jugglers Day
About International and World Jugglers Day
When is Jugglers Day? International Juggler's Day is always April 18. World Juggler's Day is the Saturday Closest to June 17.
International Jugglers Day and World Juggler’s Day celebrates the skill of juggling and those talented people who can juggle many balls and objects at a time. Common objects include balls, clubs, swords, plates, rings, and flaming sticks. The best jugglers can juggle up to ten balls at a time. And, the world record is more than that.
Juggling is a skill and form of entertainment that has been around for thousands and thousands of years. Some of the earliest recorded history supplies proof that juggling was around during the early days of civilized Man. Juggling is primarily entertainment. It is most well documented in Medieval times in Europe. Juggling remains popular today. It can be most frequently seen when the circus comes to town.
Some might suggest that office workers are jugglers, as they multi-task and keep several “balls” (projects) going at the same time. And when you think of it, aren’t we all jugglers as we try to manage the many tasks and demands of our daily lives!??
For the Record: Alex Barron of the United Kingdom holds the world record for the most balls juggled in the air. He juggled 11 balls, achieving 23 consecutive catches. His balancing act was performed at the Roehampton Squash Club, London, UK, on April 3, 2012.
