Why is Batman Day celebrated?
It was in 2014, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the creation of the character, when this day was celebrated for the first time among Batman fans. On that occasion the chosen day was July 23 to coincide that year with the celebration of San Diego Comic Con.
The following year, already in 2015, Batman Day was moved to the third weekend in September, although for many it had to be celebrated in March, the date where it first appeared. the character in a 1939 publication.
Since then it has been stipulated worldwide that the third weekend in September would serve as a tribute to the most famous bat in the world, who turns 82 this year and is still as fit as ever.
