Today's Holiday: Mother Goose Day

Some of you may be celebrating May Day, but did you know that today also doubles as Mother Goose Day? This holiday was created by Gloria Delamar in 1987 with the purpose of giving people a day to enjoy all over again the nursery rhymes of their youth. Relish the nostalgia by digging out your old Mother Goose Rhymes book and rereading your favorites. My favorites were "Five little pigs" and "Jack be nimble" Oh, and who didn't like "Diddle, diddle, dumpling"?

Can't find your Mother Goose book of rhymes? Read through some of your favorites here.

Learn more about this holiday at The Official Home of the Mother Goose Society.
