World Origami Days

About WOD (World Origami Days)


In September 2005, OrigamiUSA suggested to make October 24th as the World Origami Day, since that date is the birthday of Lillian Oppenheimer (1898-1992), one of the founders of the British Origami Society and OrigamiUSA. Makoto Yamaguchi then pointed out that in Japan November 11th had already been established as the Origami Day. World-wide celebration of origami by spreading the joy of paperfolding. So, the period from 10/24 to 11/11 has become the period of World Origami Days or WOD.
