Castle Bisset

MARCH 31, 2021

Today is a colorful day, one truly worth celebrating. Today is National Crayon Day. It is a day to celebrate the creation of crayons and the joy of coloring. The origin of crayons dates back to the17th century. In those days, the original crayons were not made of wax. The colors in those early days, were more limited, and not as long lasting or durable. Wax crayons arrived at the beginning of the 1900's. In 1902, the Crayola brand arrived on the scene and the world of crayons has never been the same since. Between 1902 and today, Crayola has come out with 120 colors. This day can be a little bittersweet, as Crayola has retired 50 colors, most often on this very day.

Crayola makes over 3 billion crayons a year. Other manufacturers combined are just a small fraction of total annual production. The world's largest crayon was made by Crayola. It was 15'6" and weighed 1,352 pounds. The smell of crayons is the most recognizable scent for adults. Over the years, Crayola has made over 237 billion crayons. Do you know what to do to celebrate National Crayon Day? You guessed it. Get out the coloring book and crayons, and show off your artistic skills. If you are an adult, it will surely bring back fond memories and make you feel like a kid again.
