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.

    If i could create a holiday i would chose party day. The purpose of party day is to let go of the everyday stress and for everyone to just let go and have fun.

    If i would have to make a holiday it would be Titanic Day. It would be Titanic Day to remember all the people who died. We would have first, second, and third class food that they would eat on the Titanic. Then we would make a mini Titanic model and make it sink. While it sinks we will have the song from the movie.

    I would do qwerty day, I would make it on the friday before the last week of school. We would get to go on the computer all day and we would get ice cream for lunch. The reason for qwerty day would be to give kids a break from school and have something to look forward too.

    My awesome holiday would be the “be in a book day”. You would get the whole day just to design a book with you as the main charters. No one would ever tell you what to do when in the book you get laser vision. And who know who your side kick would be.. if you even chose to have one.

    Well, I would make a national sleep day. You could either sleep all day or relax in your home.

    My holiday would be National NO HOMEWORK YEAR, on every leap year (ex: 2008, 2012, 2016) you get absolutly no homework. You do it all in school hours. The world would like this because a kid can get enough homework a day and rest their brains after. That is why I would like National NO HOMEWORK YEAR.
