Ferris Wheel Day and Other Unusual Holidays
Do you wait all year for Clean Out Your Computer Day to clean our all of the files that are outdated and no longer used? How many times can you change your name on Get a Different Name Day?
Clean Out Your Computer Day - I don't know about you, but I could stand to clean my computer out at least once a week, if not more often. This is the day to clean out and get rid of all your old files that aren't used anymore and free up space on your computer. What if while cleaning out all of your old files you find one that rouses your curiosity? You have no clue where this file came from and it is rather mysterious. The subject of it is the murder of your next-door neighbor. What do you do?
Get a Different Name Day - Are you unhappy with the name your parents gave you at birth? If you are, then today is the day to change your name to one you prefer. What if someone is chasing you? Maybe if you change your name, it will slow this person down discovering where you live or work. Just don't forget to change the name at the post office.
Madly in Love with Me Day - You need to love and respect yourself every day, but if you haven't been doing so, then this is the day to learn how. When you love and respect yourself, you will stay away from abusive relationships. Do you know someone who has been married to a mentally or physically husband? Or do you have a friend who has had a boyfriend that has not been so good to her? Then you know the importance of self-respect and loving yourself. Why not write a story that demonstrates just how important this is?
Ferris Wheel Day - On this day in Chicago in 1893, the first ferris wheel was unveiled. Today is the day to celebrate its invention. Do so by visiting a fairground and riding one. Or you can celebrate by writing a story about being one of the very first people to ride such an awesome creation!
A ferris wheel would be a romantic setting for a love story. Or if one character needed to have a discussion with another character who just wouldn't stay still long enough, a ferris wheel would be the perfect place for them to have this discussion. One can't exactly just walk away from anything while suspended up in the air.
National Organ Donor Day - If you haven't decided to become an organ donor upon your death, this would be the day to sign up. My somewhat demented mind cannot help but think of storylines to use for this day. There is a murderer out there who is hunting down and killing people who have decided to donate their own organs after death. Or, what if during the rapture, when the bodies rise up out of the grave, the ones who have donated organs are reunited with the organs they have donated? Will the people who received these organs just be walking down the street and have these transplanted organs fly out of their bodies?
There are plenty of books and stories out there that have to do with killing people to steal their organs or other body parts. Will you be the one to add another best-seller to the list?
Quirky Alone Day - Do other people consider you strange or just a little bit different? This is a day to celebrate your quirkiness, romance, and freedom. Celebrate whatever kind of relationship you are involved in. If you are not involved in one, then celebrate your freedom.
