It's National Merry-Go-Round Day!!! July 25 was chosen as the celebration day for National Merry-Go-Round Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, as it coincides with the first United States patent that was issued for the modern carousel. That patent was awarded to William Schneider of Davenport Iowa on July 25, 1871.
