About WOD (World Origami Days)

In September 2005, OrigamiUSA suggested to make October 24th as the World Origami Day, since that date is the birthday of Lillian Oppenheimer (1898-1992), one of the founders of the British Origami Society and OrigamiUSA. Makoto Yamaguchi then pointed out that in Japan November 11th had already been established as the Origami Day. So, the period from 10/24 to 11/11 has become the period of World Origami Days or WOD.

Since then, OrigamiUSA has been engaged to spread the joy of origami in the whole world by promoting origami events and activities. In 2011, OrigamiUSA partnered with JOAS in order to promote WOD.
