**ONLINE EXTRA - Winnie The Pooh Day
Today is Winnie the Pooh Day.
One of the cuddliest holidays around has to be Winnie the Pooh Day, celebrated on the birthday of author A.A. Milne. Winnie the Pooh first appeared on the printed page in 1926, together with friends Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore.
All of them were based on toys owned by the author’s son, who was also featured in the famous stories as Christopher Robin.
The character later starred in a series of muchloved Disney films.
