June 6th National Yo-Yo Day

The Yo-Yo has been a popular toys since BC Greece. Some think it was originally designed as a weapon but that is somewhat unlikely. China also claims having given the yo-yo to the world but evidence suggests it was a Greek invention. The yo-yo was made popular in the United States by Donald F. Duncan Sr in the early 1900’s. In fact we celebrate today on Duncan’s birthday, June 6th. So get out and “Walk the dog” or “Shoot the moon” showing off your yo-yo skills.

How to celebrate – Go buy a yo-yo. Start developing your skills with the yo-yo. Invent your own yo-yo tricks.
