January 28th is observed as International LEGO day. On this day LEGO enthusiasts, hobbyists, and builders celebrate this construction toy over 90 years old.
Why January 28th? -"On January 28, 1958, at 1:58 pm, the LEGO Group submits a patent application for “a toy building element”. The LEGO® brick as we know it today is born." (source: https://www.lego.com/en-us/history/articles/d-the-stud-and-tube-principle)
Here is your guide to help celebrate LEGO day.
The name ‘LEGO’ is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, meaning “play well”. Started back in 1932 by a carpenter and Joiner Ole Kirk Kristiansen.
