Mario World by Orioto

Break out your fake moustaches and warm up the Wii, because today is Mario Day! Because it’s Mar 10. Get it? I’m not sure when this holiday came about, but the Mario Bros are certainly worthy of celebrating!

Mario has appeared in over 200 video games, first appearing in Donkey Kong in 1981, where he was known as Jumpman.  His name was later changed to Mario in Donkey Kong Jr., named after Nintendo of America’s warehouse landlord. His twin brother, Luigi (named after a Seattle pizza joint called “Mario & Luigi’s”), was introduced in the 1983 arcade game Mario Bros. 

The Mario brothers have had many professions including: carpenter, plumber, doctor, tennis player, ghost buster, and race car driver, and have had their images portrayed on everything from cereal boxes to the big screen. I think everyone has a soft spot for the Mario Bros. whether their first introduction to them was Donkey Kong or Super Mario Galaxy. They are universally recognized by gamers and non-gamers alike and the love of these icons shows no sign of slowing down.

I’ve rounded up some amazing Mario-related Etsy crafts for your enjoyment. Have a great Mario Day!
