This holiday was named for the character made famous by Emmett Kelly, who was born on this day in 1898. Today is a day to appreciate the art of clowning and the impact that it has had on our lives. Take some time to learn to juggle, or at least wear some really big pants.

Emmett Kelly is better known as "Weary Willie," everybody's favorite clown. He entertained circus audiences as a tramp-hobo-clown for over five decades, and even performed for such notables as Winston Churchill, Harry Truman and Queen Elizabeth. The circus was Emmett's first love, but he also performed on Broadway, television and in movies. A talented cartoonist and trapeze artist, his circus career began with London-based circuses before moving to the world renowned Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus.
