Robinson Crusoe Day and Other Unusual Holidays
February has a lot of unusual holidays. This article only tells about the unusual holidays that occur on February 1. Have fun learning about these holidays and use them to make your story unique. You should be able to find more information on the mentioned holidays on the internet.
Car Insurance Day - This holiday was mentioned on several different sites, but I wasn't successful in finding out what it was supposed to celebrate. So have some fun with this one and write a story about the beginnings of this holiday celebrating car insurance.
G.I. Joe Day - For you G.I. Joe fans, this day celebrates the birthday of this comic book character. This year, he is 48 years old.
Hula in the Coola Day - Say you live up north and the winter has been long, cold, and dreary. You feel the need to bring some warmth and sunshine back into your life. How can you accomplish this? On this day, no matter how cold, snowy, and icy it is outside, put away your winter clothes and don a hula skirt and coconut bra. Bravely step out into the cold and do the hula. If your imagination is good enough, you can just wish all the coldness away and be rewarded with hot, sunny temperatures! Just for fun, when you take a break from all of your hula dancing, drink some icy cold Bahama-style drinks while you eat the pig you have roasted. If nothing else warms you up, at least you have the toasty fire used to roast the pig. Even if you don't celebrate it, you could write a really wacky story about someone who celebrated it alone or with a group of people.
Robinson Crusoe Day - On this day, even if you haven't been stranded on a lonely desert island, you can show that you, too, can be adventurous and self-reliant. Or you can just celebrate the fact that this is the day in 1709 that Alexander Selkirk, said to be the inspiration for the book Robinson Crusoe, was rescued from the deserted island that he requested his captain put him ashore on. They had been quarreling. Here is a writing prompt about this day for you – he and his captain had been arguing to such an extent that Andrew wanted off the boat. What argument could have bee that bad? What would make you want to get off the boat and stay on a deserted island?
Working Naked Day - If you work outside your home, it might not be such a good idea to celebrate this day. When your job enables you to work from the luxury of your home, today is yours to celebrate the freedom that comes with it – either work in your pajamas all day or go all out and work in your birthday suit. You can also message a friend who works in an office or cubicle and brag about how comfortable you are and how you don't have to dress up for work.
