National Magic Day

National Magic Day

Are you looking for an enjoyable reason to celebrate the wonder and magic of the universe? National Magic Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate this wonderful world!

The idea for National Magic Day began with “Houdini Day” in the beginning. This first day was held in 1927, just one year after the death the magician who gave it its name. On that day, his wife presented him a trophy.

Harry Houdini is probably the reason magic is so popular. He was, at the time of Houdini’s death, the most well-known member of the Society of American Magicians. Houdini, who died on October 31, 1926, was buried in Detroit, Michigan. This means that October 31st is not just National Magic Day or Halloween but also the anniversary of Houdini’s death.

He was born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest (Hungary) and later changed his name as Harry Houdini. His escape skills were most well-known. He could escape from handcuffs, chains and straight jackets, while hanging in the air above his audience. He challenged police officers in every city where he lived to put him in jail and handcuffs. More often than not, he was stripped first.
