Thinking Day was first created in 1926. Each year on February 22, girls honour their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by taking time to give thanks for their international friendships and remember that Girl Scouts are part of a global community - nearly 150 countries are members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

This year's theme, "together we can save children's lives," gives girls a chance to take action on issues affecting children's lives in other countries. This theme is focused on reducing child mortality rates around the globe.

February 22 was the mutual birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scout movement, and his wife, Olave, who served as World Chief Guide.

Ditto whatnauts. And later, when my younger sister was going through, Sandy Owl. Tu whit, tu whit, tu whoo!

You can add me to the list of former Brownies / Girl Guides. Thanks for these puzzles and history/explanations for each day. I look forward to seeing them each day.

Thanks PJ, there seem to be quite a lot of ex- Scouts, Guides and Brownies amongst us on Jigidi!! I do think that the fun way in which they help children to learn will help them retain the knowledge for much longer than other types of learning.

Mandy - thank you for a wonderful reminder, and a nice puzzle. Thinking and caring about people around us does make the the world a better place - and we can encourage the scouts in their activities.
I remember my own girl scout years - it was so enjoyable and we learnt so many useful things.

Judy - that's a very silly time to be getting up to solve puzzles!!! Thanks for your encouragement :~)

Thanks Pat, I hope you got every one thinking too... I lost my internet for most of the day, so I haven't been able to visit you yet today... but I will!

I'm happy to help you find out what day it is each day, Magda... thanks for the support!

Thanks Ardy, I appreciate your visits :~)

Thanks Jan, LOL - I won't tell him!

I agree Pat, if more people thought about other people more often the world would be a better place.... we do have a mini cosmos here on Jigidi though, where we think about and support each other, and I wouldn't be without it! Thanks for your support :~)

My wish for the world would be that EVERY day would be a Thinking Day! Sometimes it doesn't seem as if ANY days are......

Thanks for another fun one, Mandy! :-)))

Mandy - I LOVE this puzzle. As a former Brownie and Girl Scout - - back in the day when we sold cookies door-to-door - - I love the reminder of those days. I also appreciate the history/information you give us. I've even got Hubby asking. "Well, what day is it, today!!" (Don't tell him I told you!) Thanks!!

First thing I have to see what day it is every afternoon. And I enjoyed pkin38's comment, very funny! Now to the solving.

Oh dear Mandy if you get everyone thinking that would be a brain storm.... Love it thanks

Mandy, you have found a wonderful niche with the "Who Knew" Puzzles. I'm soooo excited for you. We all get to attend Jigidi U. together. Please keep up this wonderful theme of history lessons. You are generating much interest! BTW, my internal clock is messed up. It's 4:30 a.m. here, and I'd rather be on Jigidi than counting the proverbial sheep. Glad you are up and at 'em. Have a terrific day!

Thanks Barb, I really appreciate your appreciation, particularly relating to the "information" - I hoped it would be helpful/useful/enjoyable for everyone :~)

Goodness, Katie, I don't think I've ever seen you this early!! I'm honoured you broke your Jidigi fast with me!! Thanks :~)

Thanks Edie, when I first saw it I immediately thought "Thinking Day" - I remember that from being a Brownie!! Now its "International Thinking Day" though. The badges are such a lovely reward for the work that the children do.

Another wonderful day to celebrate, Mandy. I'm so glad you provide the history and information behind each Who Knew puzzle. Gives us each something to think about. :-)

Good day Mandy! Must be why I woke up so early today - my brain wanted to get an early start! You've provided us all with really good food for thought here. Thanks ever so much!

Glad to see that's it's still going strong. My daughter was both a brownie and a girl scout as were all of her friends at the time and I still remember sewing on her hard earned badges. Thanks for the reminder.
