National Juggling Day
It’s time for our newest installment of Obscure Holiday Awareness Blogs!
Today June 13, 2012 is known as National Juggling Day. We’ve all seen jesters, or people at a carnival juggling with fire, bowling pins, or pans. So why not give it a try?
The earliest known juggling occurred in the early 15th century! Juggling started off as entertaining royalty and was actually someone’s life long job. Now it is more a skill that people teach themselves for fun, and many still juggle as a career today.
Of course National juggling day can be taken in two ways: the sport or act of juggling objects, or juggling in the sense of managing several activities or schedules at once.
So whatever your definition of juggling may be, take a break, slow down and maybe even try to learn how to juggle a few fire balls (or bean bags).
