Origami Day is celebrated every year on November 11 and honors the ancient Japanese art of folding paper into animals. The art of origami originated in Japan during the sixth century. For many years, it was reserved for religious ceremonies. During the 17th century, origami began to be used for decorative and ceremonial functions. Recently, origami has become so popular that there were origami societies created with origami competitions around the world.

Traditionally, origami uses only paper. No scissors or cutting is involved. The folds evoke plants and animals, sometimes with astonishing realism, which makes it that much more impressive. Modern-day origami artists have started to use scissors and glue to create a kirigami, which is a variation of origami that incorporates other tools.
