National Knock Knock Joke day is observed annually on October 31.  This holiday is for jokesters of all ages to share their knock knock jokes throughout the day.
A little history of the Knock Knock Joke:
1929:  The game of Buff – A child with a stick thumps it on the ground using the following dialogue:
Knock Knock
Who’s There:
Buff
What says Buff:
Buff say Buff to all his men And I say Buff to you again.

1934:  The standard knock knock joke format was used in a newspaper humor column:
Knock Knock
Who’s There?
Rufus
Rufus Who?
Rufus the most important part of your house.

1936:  Likely the beginning of popularity for knock knock jokes.

Knock knock jokes became a regular part of the Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-in Show in the late 1960′s and early 1970′s.

Children learn to tell knock knock jokes, as one of their first types of jokes, at a very young age.
