Writing Prompt: Happy Holiday!

Posted by at 7:14 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_holiday Thank you!

For what? Well, for being awesome of course. And, because today is International Thank You Day.

Almost as soon as International Thank You Day is over, you'll need to get your popcorn ready for National Popcorn Day, coming up on January 22. And don't forget National Kazoo Day on January 28.

There are random holidays happening all the time (I'm quite looking forward to National Jelly Bean Day on April 22). So today's writing prompt is. . .

Make up your own holiday! What deserves celebration? When's your holiday and how do you celebrate it?

As always, leave your answers in the comments.

    I think Celebrate Pink! Day would be REALLY fun! Everyone would dress in pink (I’d be in hot pink) and eat pink food and girls would paint their nails pink and everyone would get pink highlights/extensions. Plus, we could have a pink party, sorta like the Barbie Pink Ticket Party, except your Barbie would have to wear all pink and both of you (Your Barbie, too!)would have to have a pretty pink ticket. I LOVE PINK!

    Here’s a brainstorming list, also:
    1) International QUIDDITCH DAY!
    2) International Hogwarts day! Show your House spirit!
    3) International I Love Harry Potter Day!

    Hahahaha… I actually have already created a holiday… BAMBOO DAY! IDK how I came up with it but I guess it’s because bamboo is RANDOM AND AWESOME just like me and deserves to be celebrated! On Bamboo Day, August 5, you eat Chinese food and do anything involving pandas, bamboo, or awesomeness.

    International Author Day, January 17. You write a book and read a book by an author you’ve read a book by before.
