Pick a Day, Any Day…

According to one of the reviews for The Fast Fiction Challenge collection, I have “an interesting mind, though not always a comfortable one”.

I think that’s a rather nice compliment… so I’m going to revel in it, and run something I haven’t done for a while…

There seem to be Special Days for everything these days. According to Holiday Insights, yesterday was National Receptionist Day, today is Lost Sock Memorial Day while tomorrow is Clean Up Your Room Day.

But I think we can do better than that. Let’s once again see how many days we can create our own special day for, concentrating, naturally, on the things that make up proud of ourselves, or our country.

Think we should have a “National Invade Another Country Day”? It’s yours.

How about a “National Throw Politicians In Jail Day”?

Or even “National Act Insufferable Day” or “National Burn a Sheep Day”.

Pick a day, preferably your birthday, and state your National Holiday.

Some days have already gone, taken previously. August 17th for example, is National Stiff Upper Lip Day, in which you’re not allowed to display any deep emotion, nothing that would show others that you’re either particularly happy or particularly upset. A typical Tuesday for a Brit, in other words.

This time around, I’m taking today as “International The Original Elmer Fudd Was Better Day” with which, surely, no one can disagree.

Your turn. And spread the word…
