Vision Board Blog Celebrate WINNIE THE POOH DAY by being as old as your shoe size TODAY! Bring out your INNER CHILD :)

It's WINNIE THE POOH DAY TODAY -- Go ahead and have a play day today -- celebrate your inner child by pretending to be as old as your shoe size today exclaims  bestsellng author Joyce Schwarz, The Visoin Board book.

Schwarz who is a keynote speaker for audiences around the country, explains that by acting like a kid again you can regain a sense of freedom, joyousness and wonder just like Winnie the Pooh and his pals express. 

Go ahead and buy a red balloon and share it with a kid your age (if your shoe size is 9 -- like mine is --act like a 9 year old :) Okay can't do it all day -- do it for an hour -- today's a great day to celebrate the joy of childlike wonder in your own life! 

Celebrate Winnie the Pooh and A.A. Milne's Birthday. He was born on January 18th in 1882.
WHERE DID POOH's Name come from? 


Where Did Pooh Bear Get His Name?

The original, very first, real, honest to goodness Winnie was a black bear cub donated to the London Zoo by a Canadian officer after World War I. Lt. Harry Colebourn had named the cub Winnie, after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This Winnie, the black bear cub at the London Zoo, became Christopher's favorite. Young Christopher (Robin) Milne named his toy bear after Winnie. His toy bear had started out with the name Edward, but I think Winnie turned out to be much better, don't you? As for the Pooh part, Pooh was actually a swan they had once met on a vacation.
