National Limerick Day
May 12, 2022
Observed annually on 12 May, National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, author, and poet Edward Lear, who popularised the limerick form – a type of short, humorous and often nonsensical verse.
You can join in the celebration by using the #NationalLimerickDay on social media, sharing your favourite limericks and writing your own.
