Writing_prompt_holidayWriting Prompt: Make Your Own Holiday

May 8 is No Socks Day! You celebrate by taking off your socks and letting your feet feel free (after school, of course). I don’t know when this random holiday was invented or why, but it got me thinking. . .

If you could create your own holiday, what would it be?

I would invent Chocolate Chip Cookie Day which you celebrate by baking chocolate chip cookies and giving them out to all your friends. Obviously, they do the same, so you get piles and piles of home-made chocolate chip cookies that day!

What would YOUR holiday be? Tell us in the Comments.

    I would make a day called Writing Day. What you would do on Writing Day is write a play, skit, small story, poem, etc. The purpose of Writing Day is to cherish the mind that we have by writing something that you put your ALL into. Not something that you slop down on a piece of paper that has a lot of errors on it.

    I would invent Be Yourself Day. You could dress with things that make you stand up and express who you really are.

    I would invent the movie day. Movie day would be where you would go to the movie theatre and see the coolest and latest movie. You would be a day where you you’d take a blanket and some money to buy stuff like candy and popcorn. Your class would take a vote on what movie you would see. DON’T forget the coupons!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    National Beatles Day! Everyone wears their Beatles t-shirts, and listens to Beatles music! It could be on October 10, or some other Beatles-significant day. By the way, October 10 is John Lennon’s (one of the Beatles), birthday. (I’m allowed to post that, right? I know birthdays are considered personal information, but you can find that on the Internet fairly easily. Besides, it’s his personal information, not mine.)

    I know this is kind of ridiculous since I’m not even 13 but I would like No Government week! that would be utterly incredible. I’d also like Warp Back Week. Every week it’s a different time period from the pass and everyone has to dress, eat, act, and talk like you were from that period.

    I think that this is a great day, not only for us but for our students. I would make national sweatpants day, where everyone would eb allowed to wear sweats to work. I think that by giving this sort of prompt to our students it will show us what they would like and also would be able to show their reasoning for it. If we made this a question of the day for our students it would allow them to show their opinion and then maybe we can have each child celebrate their “national” holiday on a certain day in the classroom.

    I would love to have a Junk Food Day, where (obviously) everyone would have to eat only junk food!! (Even though, I’d probably be totally sick later! :S )

    I’d invent Pyjama Day. It’d be in September. You’d get a day off school, and wear PJs all day! xD
    It would be tradition to buy a movie you haven’t seen before, snuggle down on the sofa and watch it at 8 o clock.

    The Holiday I would create would be , the National No Homework Month . The teachers from school would be told not to give the students homework for a month. I can only dream that something like that would happen……
