National Lincoln Loud Day on June 5 celebrates the fictional character Lincoln Loud in Nickelodeon’s animated television series “The Loud House.” Lincoln Loud, the sixth oldest of nine children, is the middle child and only son of the Loud family. Although Lincoln thinks of himself as a fun-loving guy who always loves partying, this isn’t exactly true. Somewhat lazy, he often comes up with a plan, which usually doesn’t succeed, and, more often than not, blows up in his face when they do happen. Extremely loud, even hyena-like at times, he’s an exaggerated version of a person his age.
