June 10 is National Yo-Yo Day

Although it is believed the yo-yo originated in China, the first historical documentation is a painting on a vase dating back to 500 BC. Grecian yo-yos were made from wood, metal, or terra cotta. It is believed the terra cotta yo-yos were used as gifts to the gods since they were really too fragile to play with.

Donald Duck Day – June 9

Happy Birthday Donald Duck! Donald Duck was “born” on June 9, 1934 when he made his film debut in “The Wise Little Hen”, a Silly Symphony cartoon. Since then Donald Duck has been in over one hundred cartoons and even had a daily newspaper comic strip in the late 1930s.
