The first International Lego Day was celebrated in the United States on May 20, 2000. This occasion is a day to celebrate all things Lego. Have fun playing with Legos, or spend an evening creating something out of Legos; anything goes as long as you are enjoying your time and paying tribute to the world's most famous toy blocks.
According to Wikipedia: "A holiday is a special day that is set aside by custom or by law on which normal activities are usually suspended." The idea of celebrating a day that is special to Lego fans was conceived by Ryan Howerter, who was the editor of the Brick Journal at the time. He had previously created an unofficial holiday called "BrickFest" in 1998. In 1999, he proposed the idea of a "Brick Day" to the Lego Company, but they declined. In 2000, he created an unofficial holiday called "BrickFest" for his magazine and website. It was a success and so he continued to celebrate it.
The first official Brick Day was celebrated on May 25, 2002, which was the 107th anniversary of the patent for the interlocking Lego brick. It is celebrated every year on that day. The celebration includes a variety of events, including building contests, Lego exhibits, and other events.
The celebration is celebrated by fans around the world. Some companies, such as the Lego Group, have participated in Brick Day. In 2003, the Lego Group released a limited edition of special-edition Minifigures to commemorate Brick Day.
Brick Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. In 2007, events were held in the United States, Canada, Denmark, the United Kingdom, and Sweden. In 2009, events were held in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States.
