About 2×4 Day

This group celebrates April 2nd as a Global Day of LEGO® Play, a date symbolic of the 2×4 brick, an iconic image for LEGO® fans.

The day was born of a conversation on the LEGO® User Group Ambassador Network, a forum for LEGO(r) User Group (LUG) ambassadors on the LAN.

Suggested by Long Beach LEGO(r) User Group (LBLUG) Ambassador Trish Tsoiasue, a handful of LUG Ambassadors from Peru, Romania, Canada, the USA… discussed the date concept was a good one, and many dates were suggested.  April 2nd was selected as the date.
