March 10th (Mar10) is Mario Day!

Really any day is Mario Day, but March 10th can be the day to get started on a Super Mario cross-stitch.

And depending on the size of the cross-stitch, Mario Day is going to be everyday at least for awhile 😉

Did you know:

  • The character, known today as Mario, first appeared in 1981 in a game called Donkey Kong. Though many suggest he is the father of Mario and Luigi.
  • The ‘holiday’ was created by fans then Nintendo adopted it in 2016. The company started celebrating it annually by promoting Mario games, mostly with big discounts on Mario-related titles.
  • Mario was named after American businessman Mario Segale who rented warehouse space to Nintendo.

Aunt Kelley hasn’t played Mario Bros since the 1980s. Mostly because it was my friends Nintendo system. I graduated from high school in 1990 and got a Sega Genesis. Then it was all about Sonic the Hedgehog and Crash Bandicoot. They were my boys!

That’s cool and all, but let’s pick a cross-stitch pattern and get to stitching!
