Happy Birthday, Winnie-ther-Pooh!

It is Winnie-the-Pooh’s 80th Birthday today! He was introduced to the public through a BBC radio show on Christmas Eve, 1925. I have adored this silly old bear (and most especially his best pal, Piglet) my whole life. I still remember my grandfather reading the stories to me. I read them to Michael a few years ago, since he had never heard them, and he loves them now too! My favourite part is when Pooh falls out of the tree trying to think, but each thought gets gossled out of his head when he hits a branch. Michael’s favourite part is the flood story where Pooh creates his own boat, and then debates with it for a while who is supposed to be on top. I honestly think everyone should read the four original books by A. A. Milne. So Happy Birthday to everyone in the Hundred Acre Woods! I hope you have at least 80 more wonderful years there!

Oh, and don’t say I misspelled his name in the title of this blog, I didn’t. Go read the first chapter of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne for an explanation.
