Invent a holiday! Explain how and why everyone should celebrate.
Thanks for the great idea, rarasaur!
here is my Daily Prompt
here is my idea
Love this idea! Here’s mine: http://inlovewiththelord.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/the-daily-post-a-different-kind-of-holiday/
here is my invented holiday: http://rosechimera.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/visit-a-national-historic-landmark-day/
Here is my holiday.
Hi. This is my idea for a new holiday!
Reblogged this on saudmakar.
My post on creating a holiday: http://shadozablog.wordpress.com/
Here’s my offering:
Let’s have International Human Day. Let’s just celebrate the one thing we all have in common. Great idea this Daily Post.
Celebrate Safe Day!
How about a holiday filled with light, known as Festival of Lights (aka Diwali)? I certainly didn’t invent this, but I did write about it (and I made some videos showing Diwali celebrations). http://luchaniktravel.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/happy-diwali-and-happy-holidays-from-balboa-park/
Wouldn’t it be great that we forget our problems and our differences for music? Here is my new holiday idea.
My daughter came up with her own holiday. Heather Day! I told her that everyday is Heather day. What do you think?
There are holidays to honor human events and cultures, but has there ever been a holiday to respect and honor creation, and to thank God for our existence? I think there should be a holiday to honor all life which includes the creation of our universe, humanity, animals, and the rest of God’s creatures. Honor Creation Day encompasses bits and pieces of other holidays, but goes beyond cultures, religion, and nature worship. There are many ways to respect creation without cultural differences and political correctness and this holiday can be celebrated in many more personal ways.
Having a holiday to honor creation will assist in resolving some psychological and humanitarian issues for most people, because it will be an honor to appreciate life. It may not be a perfect solution, but it can be a start. Some people do not honor life. To honor creation is really a psychological and intrinsic need because many question the world around them and their existence. Many may not realize or acknowledge a deep need to be appreciated as a human being and wanting to know if God exist. Creation day will help many people realize that they were created for a purpose which is love and to appreciate living their lives as God intended them to live. The purpose is to appreciate someone because they exist and to also appreciate yourself. One does not have to like someone, but everyone should be respected.
There is already a national prayer day, an earth day, and a respect for life day, but creation involves the very act of the creator who created life on our planet. Those who do not believe in God can still appreciate creation because they exist and live in a world fill of different and similar creations. The things that they love still exist beyond themselves and exist for a reason. Perhaps this will allow those who do not believe in God to finally realize that there is more to life than just their own existence.
The celebration of creation day can take place anywhere and can involve any form of celebration including sending cards, lighting candles, praying, communicated with others and saying thank you for being a great person, and it would be nice to get a day off if this holiday becomes a Federal holiday or worldwide prayer type event. I recommend one of the following days: October 2, April 19, January 17, or August 3.
The cares of life are all around us, and also the negative results of war, politics, natural disasters, and people exhibiting hatred and cruelty which can happen anywhere and at anytime. This type of holiday may not resolve all the issues facing daily struggles but it will help most people to stop and think about considering solutions. Having a creation day will allow us even for a second to question our actions and not just be politically correct, and honestly allow us to take a clean look around our world and appreciate each other regardless of our inner natures.
В тази публикация виждам интересно мислене. Поздравления! Една много добре изложена идея . Мисля,че поставената тема може да бъде още задълбочена. Според мен можем да поговорим за смисъла на човешкия живот Може би живеем някак по инерция без много-много да се замисляме Понякога сме развълнувани от събития и явления ,но само временно Както казваме в България- всяко чудо за три дни. Смея да твърдя, че в днешно време ни липсва мащабното мислене- в широчина, дълбочина , перспектива И още – на преден план в живота ни трябва да излязат личности
The holiday is Honor Creation Day
Love it! Let’s all celebrate Diamond Day! http://diamondmikewatson.wordpress.com/
‘Tis the Eve of NaNoWriMo: http://evadeverell.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/nanowrimo-eve/
So my holiday is: http://kansamuse.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/daily-prompt-take-a-hike-day
My holiday: http://purplerosemary.com/2012/10/31/national-ignore-the-news-day/
My holiday would occur every five days, lasting for two days; it would be celebrated by spending large amounts of time in bed, watching TV, smoking spliff and eating chocolate … oh, it might already exist, it’s called the ‘weekend’ :))
Ah, nothing like something I can wrap my brain around and sink my teeth into!
Label Day is just around the corner! https://rarasaur.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/november-22nd-international-label-day/
I forgot to mention: he really deserves a holiday!
Well, guess I goofed on my comment.
I believe we need a Crow for the Cockroach day in honor of Cochran Cornell, the cantankerous Cockroach, my cartoon character and alter ego. He really deserves a day devoted to his ilk. He has been with me for about 25 years.
He describes his attempt to “find himself_ in a letter to another cartoon character (my firend’s), A’nonniemouse. ( http://carolyncholland.wordpress.com/2008/03/06/dear-anonniemouse-from-cochran-cockroach/ ).
Cochran has his own category on my site, http://carolyncholland.wordpress.com/category/cochrans-shenanigans/ .
Vote for a holiday for the cockroach!
I have a great idea(At least, in my opinion,) for this Daily Prompt.
National No Put-down week.
Reblogged this on Two Wizards Fly over Mount Parnassus and commented:
wasn’t planning on doing a daily prompt except that yesterday we actually (my 7 and 5 yr old) did invent our own holiday. Thought I may as well blog about it. http://walklikeenoch.com/2012/11/01/a-new-holiday/

Warning you might need an address book, a couple bottles of diet coke, a bunch of cash and a DVD of the “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood” to celebrate this holiday: Just a suggestion.

Not exactly inventing a holiday, but I think that Mondayitis is an open secret that everyone knows about. I’m just bringing it out into the open.
