About the Holiday

Curling is Cool Day is a day to celebrate, learn, and to play a sport that began in Scotland in the 1500's. Curling is a team sport in which players slide heavy granite stones down a sheet of ice at a circular target area. A curling tournament is known as a bonspiel. Curling has been an official sport in the Winter Olympic Games since 1998, but curling was included in the the inaugural Winter Olympic Games in 1924, but the results were not made official until 2006. Today celebrate this holiday by playing the game or learning about the history and scoring of the game.
