National Mario Day is observed each year on March 10th and honors Mario from the popular Nintendo game.
This gamer holiday is celebrated on March 10 because of the way the date appears, when abbreviated (Mar.10). It looks just like the name Mario.
- Mario, the Italian plumber, first appeared in Donkey Kong in 1981
- In 1983 Mario got his own game with his brother Luigi
- Mario is known for being the most famous video game character ever created
