Summary
Mar10 is Mario, giving us a day to celebrate the world's most-famous plumber.

It's a me - Mario!

Mario Day is celebrated on March 10 because the abbreviation “MAR10” looks just like the name of the classic video game character, Mario.

Nintendo officially adopted the holiday in 2016, and ever since it has been a day for video game fans, young and old alike, to celebrate everything they love about gaming. Of course, the best way to celebrate would be booting up your old Nintendo systems and enjoying some classic Mario titles.

Mario is named after real-life businessman Mario Segale, who was renting out a warehouse to Nintendo. After Nintendo fell far behind on rent, Segale did not evict them but gave them a second chance to come up with the money. Nintendo succeeded and named their main character after him. 

  • Did you know? In the 1990s, Super Mario was better known to US children than Mickey Mouse.
  • Did you know? The ‘Super Mario Bros.’ series holds a Guinness record for being the ‘most successful gaming franchise of all times’.
