Wonder how a day celebrated on social media is started? Well, National Puzzle Day was created over 20 years by Jodi Jill, a puzzle lover herself. After finding a delight in making puzzles for others to solve, she recognized how cool it would be celebrating the one thing she loved on her special day. That’s right, instead of getting gifts for her birthday, she shares her love of puzzles by sharing with others.

National Puzzle Day originally started inviting classrooms to solve puzzles Jill made. Kids were encouraged to send a self-addressed stamped envelope to get a free puzzle mailed to them directly on one special day: January 29. The free puzzle celebration was moved online so people around the world could participate. In 2021, the celebration of continues as Jill again offers free puzzles for the asking on her puzzle site Puzzles to Play (, but this year there are dozens of puzzle manufacturers and puzzle enthusiasts offering freebies for the puzzle day too!

“I love puzzles. I enjoy making puzzles for others to play. Celebrating puzzles was just an idea I had and it started so small with students writing in for free puzzles on January 29th,” said Jodi Jill founder of National Puzzle Day. “Today, thanks to the web, it’s all over the world and last year it was a record number with several million people sharing in the puzzle fun. I’m so humbled to see the response.”

A professional puzzle maker, Jill is delighted to see millions of people play puzzles with her on this day.
