We are still celebrating: International Braille Day
World Braille Day, which is celebrated every January the 4th, because it is Louis Braille’s birthday, the inventor of braille! Louis became blind after a childhood accident, and he quickly mastered what would be his new way of living. When he was just 15 years old, he created the system we know today as braille, based on a system of writing developed by Charles Barbier. Over the years braille was modified in order to make it a lot more easier to read, and now it’s used all over the world.
