Add info on 2010

Someone who was there, please. It is so much shorter than the others.

There's not really much to say about Scratch Day 2010.

Future Scratch Days

Will the next Scratch Day be on 17 May 2014?

Maximal?

Landing it on a Saturday does not guarantee attendance for all Scratchers who would otherwise be able to join in. In East Asia, schoolchildren attend school on:

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
No Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes

except on holidays or during festivals. School starts on April 1st and ends on March 31st. Elementary school begins at 0830 hours and ends at 1500 hours. The average Japanese student attends about 252 days of school a year, which is about 68.852% to 69.041% of their year. Many Japanese Scratchers would be in school or doing homework on that date. In contrast, Americans go to school on:

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
No Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No

School begins in late August and ends in late May. Elementary school begins at 0800 hours and ends at 0230 hours. American children attend school 175-185 days a year. That's 47.814% to 50.685% of their year. Most American Scratchers would be home on that date.

There are about 5 East Asians for every American (*grunt* Thanks a lot, China.)

However, about 30.5% of all people are Christians, and most (about 56%) go to church. 32.2% of all Mexicans 77.1% of all Canadians, and 79.5% of all Americans (!!!) are Christians. You can expect to find at least one Christian in every country.

So the two days tend to miss roughly the same number of people.

In conclusion, Scratch Day cannot always cover everyone who might want to go.

Well, most East Asia children won't be going to Scratcn Day MIT, and they'd already be missing school for that. :)
A more problematic non-maximal is cutting religious Jews from attending Scratch Day MIT - and there are definitely more of them who'd like to go than East Asians.

External Programs?

This page has the {{External Programs}} template on it, which is supposed to warn users that there are links outside of Scratch and Wikipedia. I did't find any outside links. Why is the template there?

I think someone thought the day.scratch.mit.edu links were external, and added the template. I've removed it.

New Date

When someone finds out the date for the next Scratch Day, do they add it? Or do they wait until the day after Scratch Day? I am asking because it doesn't have the date for 2019, which is May 11. Thanks

Scratch Day Plush?

I tried making a page about it but it was removed due to not having enough infomation about it (I think it also said something about it not warranting its own page), i want others opinons if we should do more research about it so we can add it as a subsection in the aticle.

There is ONLY one source of it's exsitance i can find... (A Tweet made by Mitchel Resnick made on Scratch Day 2019 in Shanghai)

I deleted the page because 1. a Scratch Day plush by itself isn't significant enough to warrant its own article and 2. the plush itself doesn't have much significance to the Scratch history or culture, evidenced by the fact that the only evidence of its existence is the one tweet. While point (1) can be addressed by making it a section of its own article, point (2) really isn't addressed until there evidence that it is at least somewhat widely available or otherwise significant to Scratch history or culture.

Yeah, I understand that it's not enough for it's own page nor is it factually important. it's just uncommon for promotional mediums like this to be officially documented if at all. eventually this might just get lost in time that's why I wanted to make a section about it once more information is known about it.
