National Winnie the Pooh Day is observed annually on January 18th. Winnie the Pooh is a creation from author A.A. Milne. He brought this adorable, honey-loving bear to life in many stories which also featured his son, Christopher Robin.

Winnie the Pooh was inspired by a black bear named Winnie who lived at the London Zoo during World War I. The author’s son, Christopher Robin, would visit the bear often and named his own teddy bear after her and a swan named Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh first appeared on the printed page in 1926, together with friends Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore.

Later on a collection of books starting with Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926. The books were illustrated by E.H. Shepard.

In the 1960s, Disney bought the rights to the Winnie-the-Pooh characters dropping the hyphen from Pooh’s name. The illustrations were a bit different, too.

Milne’s stories have been translated into over 50 languages and are considered classic children’s stories today.
