WOOHOO! Today, March 10th (Mar10), marks a glorious occasion for Nintendo fans young and old: it’s National Mario Day! Celebrate the occasion with friends and family, or by yourself (whichever you prefer), by spending some time with everyone’s favorite pixel plumber.

Maybe you have a favorite Mario game (like Super Mario RPG, the best entry in the series ever, duh) that you want to pour some hours into after a long day of school or work, or maybe your idea of honoring the event involves packing in as many Mario games as humanly possible in a matter of 24 hours. Even if you don’t have any (question) blocks of time to spare, you can simply pull out your phone and play Super Mario Run while on the go during your busy day.

Whatever your game-lovin’ heart is leaning towards, we totally suggest you do it, and do it today! And while you’re at it, take advantage of the saying “Mamma Mia!” at every opportunity that presents itself. Because really, Mario Day only comes but once a year.

From everyone here at Nintendo Wire to you: Happy Mario Day!
