limerick day

Limerick Day is celebrated annually on May 12th. The holiday encourages people to read and write Limericks, which are a genre of poetry from 18th century England. Limerick Day is in honor of Edward Lear, who popularized the humorous limerick in his “Book of Nonsense” in 1846.

It is believed that the name derives from the city of Limerick, Ireland. and the poetry is often humorous in nature. The first line of a limerick introduced a person and a place, and the rest of the poem described a funny situation involving the subject or the place. Limericks can be vulgar and often inappropriate. Lear considered “clean” limericks to be average at best.
