Make Up Your Own Holiday Day - Have you ever wanted to make up your own holiday? Today is the day to do so. Today you celebrate whatever it is you want to celebrate. Your holiday won't be put on the calendar, but you can tell your friends and family about it and have them celebrate it with you.
There really is a way to create a holiday and have it put on the calendar. How do you think all of these offbeat holidays made it there? Investigate how to create a holiday. Then create a character whose deepest desire is to create a holiday about an event that is very special to him.
National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day - Any day that celebrates chocolate is great! This day celebrates not only chocolate, but chocolate covered raisins! Yummy! So treat yourself to a handful of this delicious treat, or if you aren't too worried about your weight, eat an entire bag of them.
Besides, chocolate is made from cocoa beans and they are good for you, while raisins are a fruit. So logically chocolate covered raisins, fruit that is covered with chocolate, should be good for you.
This holiday was probably created by someone in the candy business. To celebrate this day, come up with your own fantastic, far-out reason this holiday was created and write a story about it.
Pecan Day - There are actually two completely different days that celebrate this delicious nut. One of these days is March 25 and the other one is April 14. Why does this nut deserve not just one, but two holidays? Well, it is the pecan tree is the only nut tree that is native to North America.
Create a character who is known for making scrumptious pecan pies. On Pecan Day there is going to be a pecan pie baking contest and everyone is so sure that she will come out victorious, but there is someone new in town who also bakes pecan pies. This newcomer is also going to enter the contest. What happens?
Tolkien Reading Day - This is a day to read and celebrate the writings of J.R.R. . This very talented author brought us The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The date for this holiday was chosen by the Tolkien Society. Why did they choose this day? In the Lord of the Rings books, March 25 is the day of the downfall of Sauron.
Celebrate today by reading the works of this great man. If you don't own any of his books, go out and buy them. Through his writings you will experience new worlds, new races, and some awesome adventures.
Do you think you can come up with a cast of characters as interesting as J.R.R. Tolkien did? Can you create a story as compelling as one of his? To celebrate this day, come up with a storyline and a cast of characters that would make Mr. Tolkien proud.
Vaffeldagen - March 25 is Waffle Day. Did you know that waffles were first enjoyed in Greece in the 1300s? Back then they didn't have syrup to pour on their waffles, so they topped them with different herbs and cheeses. This day originated in Sweden and coincides with the Feast of Annunciation. They also consider this day the first day of spring. It became a custom for the Swedes to celebrate these two events by making waffles.
Create a character who lives back in Greece during the 1300s. I don't know when syrup was first created, but this is going to be fiction. Your character loves waffles, but isn't fond of topping them with herbs and cheese. He wants something sweet on top of them, something that will pour and thoroughly coat each bite of this scrumptious delicacy. Have this character discover a way to make syrup.
