Can Holiday: World Puppetry Day – March 21


Origin

World Puppetry Day was first thought of in 2000 by Dzhivada Zolfagariho, a puppet theater in Iran. It became official when the Union Internationale de la Marionnette (UNIMA) adopted the idea in 2002 and first celebrated it in 2003. UNIMA-USA was founded by Jim Henson in 1966. This year marks the 10th anniversary of World Puppetry Day.

How to Celebrate

The idea behind World Puppetry Day is to celebrate puppetry. Today, you can put on a puppet show or watch The Muppets, Fraggle Rock, or Sesame Street. If you are into classics, watch Kukla, Fran and Ollie or The Shari Lewis Show. If you are in New York City, visit FAO Schwarz and make your own Muppet Whatnot.

1986 Diet Cherry Coke "15 Years of Walt Disney World" Pinocchio Can

To honor this day we are featuring the 1986 Diet Cherry Coke 15 Years of Walt Disney World Pinocchio can. Pinocchio is a marionette, which is a type of puppet, who starred in Disney's Pinocchio – released in 1940. Pinocchio was Disney's 2nd feature film. Under Pinocchio's picture the can reads, "When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true – and for this brave little puppet it means living the life of a real boy with no strings attached."  (We featured another can from this same set during Public Sleeping Day.)

Happy World Puppetry Day (3/21)!

  3. If you start to feel tht way, it's about time to get your mind from
    it. As possible, don't date consumers so as not to jeopardize
    the businness you have with the consumer.

  4. Most of the girls are choosing the basic sheepskin slip shoes, as they are comfortable and stylish.
    They are going to almost any extent to look good and attractive.

    The Fashion Industry is totally focused on how people look and larger people do not
    figure on mainstream fashion's radar.

    with SEO? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some
    targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good results.
