January 22nd National Polka Dot Day.
I could not find any real history of when the polka-dot came into being. It was probably right after some painter dribbled their paint on their smock! The polka-dot became very popular after Minnie Mouse appeared on the scene in 1928.
Today you find them everywhere! It’s not like you can really miss them! Flamenco dancers did wear polka-dots in 1867, and in 1962 DC made a hero named Polka-dot Man (he never stood a chance).
How to celebrate – Wear something with polka dots. Paint your house in polka dots. Wear them to Disney so no one can see you there.
