Yo-Yo Day

Yo-Yo day is here…hooray! Not that you need an excuse to play with your Yo-Yo. Wherever you are today, get out your Yo-Yo and impress your friends, family, and co-workers with your Yo-Yo skills. And, do it at work today! If you don’t think it’s appropriate at work, consider the fact that three U.S. presidents (Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon) showed off their Yo-Yo expertise while in office! It’s origin is hard to factually prove. Many believe that the Yo-Yo originated in China as early as 500-1000 B.C. However, their is some evidence that it was first used in Greece even before this time. Over the centuries the Yo-Yo has had it’s ups and downs (tee,hee).   The classic Yo-Yo was made wildly popular in America by businessman Donald F. Duncan Sr. He manufactured the “Duncan Yo-Yo” in the early 1900’s. Celebrate the Yo-YTo today by “walking the dog” or “shooting the moon”, the most popular tricks. Origin of Yo-Yo Day: National Yo-Yo Day was established as June 6th in honor of the birthday of Donald F. Duncan Sr. While June 6th is recognized as Yo-Yo Day, there is some unsubstantiated reference to June 10th. Yo-Yo Trivia: The worlds largest Yo-Yo weighs 256 pounds, and is on display at the National Yo-Yo museum. In 1992, Jeffrey Hoffman took a Yo-Yo into space aboard the shuttle Atlantis.
