Happy Birthday, Lewis Carroll!

To celebrate, I would suggest having an Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland party. Lewis Carroll, whose legal name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, provided readers with one of the most fantastical and adored lands. Is there one among us who hasn’t dreamed of going to a riddle-filled tea party with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse? Follow that up with a game of croquet in the company of living playing cards, and the afternoon is complete, as long as it’s not “off with your head.”

The name “Lewis Carroll” immediately conjures up images of an untimely rabbit and a giant girl who cries herself into a pool of tears, proving how much an author can permeate the lives of children and adults alike.

If you can’t fit in a day filled with a tea party and croquet, take time to revisit the tale of Alice, along with other works by Carroll.
