Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog

Frog Jumping Day


Frog Jumping Day is a great day to jump like a frog. Or, is today intended to jump "over" a frog? Either way, today is a fun day and is always on May 13th . But, is this truly the reason for this day?  Read on.........

The roots of Frog Jumping Day go back to Mark Twain's first short story. It was first published in 1865 as "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog". Later, he published it as "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County". It is also known under a third title "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".

How is the best way to celebrate Frog Jumping Day?

  • Read Mark Twains story "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog"
  • Also, we don't think Mark Twain would mind if you jumped like a frog or jumped a frog today.
