A Brief History:
Origination: The wind is not new. It is just about as old as the planet Earth. It is celebrated on the day that the highest wind was recorded on Earth. The day is based on that day of April 12, 1934 when at the Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire, the afternoon brought a wind that recorded 231 miles per hour!
Celebrated: The day is celebrated on April 12th each year*.
