Did you know National Kazoo Day occurs in the month of January? That's right, it's celebrated January 28th each year! Although there is no official documentation to confirm, the kazoo is said to be invented by Alabama Vest (an African American in Macon, Georgia) around 1840. The kazoo has been used for hundreds of years in Africa, usually for ceremonial purposes. There is even a kazoo museum in Beaufort, SC!
