Today is February 8th! this means it is National Kite Flying Day!
A little history on the origin of kite flying, Kites date back to China in 470 B.C. China is full of lore and histories of the origins of the kite. Many are related to the way wind affects the leaves on the trees, the shelters they lived in, blowing away the sails on their ships and the hats they wore upon their heads. The stories also tell of kites being invented to spy on their enemies or to send messages.
it’s nice to know history but the fun is in getting to and open park and getting that kite high into the sky!, Happy #NationalKiteFlyingDay
