Write. Share. Give.

The other day, March 26th,  our school celebrated “Make Your Own Holiday”.  Imagine designing a special day to celebrate what you choose. The students had a blast. We ended up with a Teddy Bear Day, Hug Your Stuffy Day(HYSD), Dance Day and a Game Day. There was even one created by a kid who still like his classes – A School Day. This included parades with students and teachers and a fund-raiser giveaway for the poorer less fortunate classmates. Of course, here in norther NH there was a Snowmobile Day. Everyone gets to drive or at least ride on a snowmobile, maybe even race one. One aspiring actor had a Drama Day with lots of free plays and entertainment. One could pretend to be their favorite character all day. I naturally designed a “Read in a Hammock Day”. It would be incredibly relaxing to spend the day reading and swinging quietly under a shady tree. Am I looking forward to summer, or what?

  1. Your slice got me thinking of what my holiday would be. I think “Immerse Yourself in Music Day” but I pretty much do that anyway.
