And for those of you not celebrating, did you know it's also Mario day?

Here are some fun facts to power-up your Mother's Day:
  • Mario, a beloved red-hatted plumber, first appeared in 1981 in a game called Donkey Kong made by Nintendo. 
  • Did you know at least one Super Mario game has been released for every major Nintendo video game console?
So enjoy Mario day, happy gaming and to any mothers reading: You're a Super Star!

    I love Mario!! I've played it so much I know many levels (especially in the earlier worlds) off by heart. A number of years back I purchased an old SNES to play the old ones for nostalgia purposes!! 
    I've said elsewhere I find Mother's Day a difficult one so I'm very happy to read this and will be celebrating Mar10 day instead!!! :D<3

    I'll have to come to you for tips and tricks next time my kids ask me to help with a level then @Biblioklept! I wish I could say I was any good at the SNES classics, but I just have to admit at this stage that I'm not very good at Mario. The Mario Party and Mario Kart games have always been more my speed than the platformers!

    I'm old enough to remember when the NES first came out. I was addicted to Mario and Duck hunt. :) 

    I've not played any of the recent Mario games though.
