Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Limerick Day

A Limerick’s easy to write

Five lines with a humorous bite

And the first one must rhyme

with the last two each time

While the middle two paired make it right.

National Limerick Day celebrates the artist, illustrator, author, and poet Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 – Jan. 29, 1888) who was known for short, five line poems that often used made up words or limericks. Will you try to write one?
