Batman Day

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Batman’s first comic book appearance.  DC Comics declared last Wednesday to be “Batman Day,” the official celebration day (even though the first comic book with Batman in it came out in May of 1939).  To Tad, hearing that it was Batman Day was like hearing it was Christmas and Halloween rolled into one.

I took the kids to our local Barnes & Noble for Batman Day storytime, craft, and free comic book.  Tad went prepared.

All Batman-ed up

His siblings also went prepared.  Rerun didn’t have a shirt in the correct size (most of his stuff is Superman, because that’s his favorite and Tad discovered Batman when he was older than Rerun, so no hand-me-downs yet), but he did have a pajama top that worked.  (Thumper has Batman shirts because Rerun was a baby when Tad discovered Batman, so he had a few things to match his brother before he decided Superman was his favorite.)

Bat Kids

Dressed like this, the boys ended up winning a costume contest – and a comic book guide each!  We also came home with the free comic book – a reprint of the original May 1939 story along with a couple of others – a poster for Tad’s side of the bedroom, and bookmarks.

Tad had a fun time reveling in one of his most favorite things.  And so did the rest of the kids.

Hope you all had a Happy Batman Day, too!
