Alice in Wonderland Day

Alice in Wonderland Day

Lewis Carroll fans will love celebrating Alice in Wonderland Day, which celebrates the amazing fantasy characters.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was born in Cheshire, England. He was a mathematician and published children’s books and nonsense verse under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was first published in 1865. The next book, Through the Looking Glass, was published in 1871.

The story of the first book was told orally to Alice Liddell (the middle daughter of Dean Henry Liddell), who was close friends with the author. Alice, ten years old, begged him to write it down. This resulted in a handwritten copy that was given to her in 1964 with the title Alice’s Adventures in Under Ground. It is now kept in the British Library.

Alice, a 7-year-old girl, is featured in the stories. She falls through a rabbit hole, then takes in the contents of a glass labeled “Drink Me” and embarks on a wonderful adventure. Little Alice herself admits that her adventures are likely dreams at the end of the book.

This kind of literary fantasy and nonsense was exactly what Victorian England’s children wanted, so Lewis Carroll’s works became extremely popular. It has been translated into more than 170 languages, and sold over 100 million copies.

The 150th anniversary since the publication of the story was in 2015. This was also the first Alice in Wonderland Day. Because that’s the day Lewis Carroll first told Alice Liddell the story before writing it down, July 4 was chosen.

Alice in Wonderland Day celebrates everything that is connected to one little girl’s adventures, which have had an impact on millions of people for over 150 years.

There are many creative and imaginative ways to celebrate Alice in Wonderland Day. These ideas are just a few of the many ways you can celebrate Alice in Wonderland Day. You may also come up with your own unique and more “curious” ways.

This is the perfect place to invite your friends and family to celebrate Alice’s world of Wonderland. You could even make the party a tea party according to the book’s theme, with tea in tiny teapots and cookies, crumpets, and jam.

Invite your guests to dress up in their favorite Alice in Wonderland character from the movies or the books. You can choose from Alice, Tweedledee, Tweedledum or the Queen of Hearts. As background music, don’t forget the soundtracks to the films!

You can have loads of fun decorating for an Alice in Wonderland Day Party. Playing cards, clocks and keys, pink flamingos, white rabbits and pink flamingos are all great options. You can write fun messages from films and books onto colorful signs that you hang around the room.

You can entertain guests by letting them act out scenes from the book. Alternatively, those with less interactive skills might enjoy watching one of the films with you. You can even ask someone with a great reading voice to read a chapter of one of the original books to everyone.

Celebrate Alice in Wonderland Day with your creativity in the kitchen. Make cupcakes with the faces of your characters and decorate them with cupcakes.

You can also make sugar cookies, and decorate them with messages and themes from the films and books. To celebrate the occasion, share the goodies with your neighbors, friends, and coworkers to allow them to join the celebration.

These classic books, even though published over 150 years ago are still a delight to readers. Both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (and Through the Looking Glass) are available in almost all bookshops. They can also be accessed online through Project Gutenberg or Kindle.
