“Winnie the Pooh”

Standard

According to my clock (PST in the U.S.), I’ve got just about an hour and twenty minutes left to celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day.  January 18th is the birthday of A.A. Milne, the creator of Pooh Bear and all his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood.  So pull up your favorite teddy bear and sing along.

This is the way I remember Pooh best.  We used to watch The Wonderful World of Disney on TV, and sometimes they would show one of the Winnie the Pooh shorts during the program.  I also remember being read the Milne books as a very small child, three or four at most.  They’re some of my earliest memories and probably the reason why I love these characters so much.
