Screen Free Week 2-8
What is screen free week? Itís a time for families, kids, and communities around the world to unplug from cell phones, game devices, TV and other digital media (except for work and school assignments) and spend some time doing other things. You could have a craft night, read a book, play cards, go fishing or any of the myriad of other activities that donít require a screen to use. Itís a great way to get reacquainted with the family and do some bonding.
Intergalactic Star Wars Day 4

The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase ďMay the Force be with youĒóďMay the Fourth be with you.Ē Although Lucasfilm did not create or declare the holiday, many Star Wars choose May 4th to celebrate the holiday.
Put a Pillow on Your Fridge Day 29
Put a pillow on your fridge day is celebrated mainly in the USA and Europe as a way to bring good luck and wealth into the household.
The origins of this tradition are unknown. However before the 1930ís, cloth was put in large cupboard (larder) in order to bring prosperity and good luck to the household.
The tradition has since evolved into putting a pillow on or inside the fridge. So find a pillow or even two and start your own prosperity tradition. Who knows, it might just work. ;)
Celebrating Mystery Month, Screen Free Week, Intergalactic Star Wars Day or any of the other fun May holidays is a fun way to pass the time and get together with family and friends.
