Did you know the word trivia can be traced back to the modern Latin word trivium, which means “place where three roads meet” or “crossroads?” 

Trivia is defined as information and data of little value or obscure facts. But anyone who has ever spent countless hours on the internet researching their favorite TV shows, scientific factoids and pop culture, or has played in a quiz competition knows just how fun trivia can be!

Over the years, we’ve posted a lot of infographics about our region, public media, and more. In honor of National Trivia Day on January 4th, check out some of our favorite bits of trivia below and then view our entire album here. Know any good trivia of your own? Add them in the comments for us all to enjoy!
